RENATO WHITE WINES
Renato Pinot Gris
The typical Nelson climate spoils us with very sunny and dry summers and early autumns, which allows us to patiently ripen the grapes to full maturity. The grapes are hand picked and whole bunch pressed. This is a delicate, floral style of Pinot Gris, showing hints of lychee and spice on the nose. It convinces with concentrated flavours of dried pear, quince & lychee and a lovely mouthfeel. A well balanced wine with a gentle sweetness, an extereal texture and silky tannins. Attractive and long, best drinking within 2 - 5 years of vintage.
Renato Sauvignon Blanc
A vibrant, attractive Sauvignon Blanc from selected parcels of fruit grown on the alluvial soils of the Waimea plains. Immediately appealing, the wine displays ripe passionfruit and hints of lemon on the nose, while the palate reveals layers of flavours, such as gooseberry, lime and elderberry. It’s a delicate but full-bodied Sauvignon Blanc with a crisp, refreshing finish and an immense drinking pleasure. Best within 1 - 4 years of vintage.
RENATO RED WINES
Renato Pinot Noir
Our dry warm summers keep producing lovely fruit which is harvested at perfect ripeness. The Renato Pinot Noir is only made from the best parcels of handpicked fruit, and aged for 11 months in top quality French oak barriques (25% new). It is deep purple in colour and displays concentrated aromas of wild berries and dark cherries. A complex, full bodied wine with a great texture, mouth-filling tannins and nicely integrated oak. A well-strucutred and elegant Pinot Noir with a persistent finish, which will reward mid- to longterm cellaring. Best drinking within 3 - 5 years after vintage.
Hand harvested grapes from ultra-low cropping vines on Kina's clay soils produce our dark coloured, concentrated Merlot. After an extended maturation in stainless tell tanks, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. A dark coloured red, this wine displays attractive characters of dark plum, blueberry and mulberry. On the palate well-moderated oak aromas counter-balance elegant, juicy fruit tannins. A medium bodied Merlot in a lovely cool-climate style, it will be unfolding its full potential within 2 - 4 years of vintage.
