Ripponvale fuses tradition and innovation to celebrate the bounty of this historic region with two varietals of Cherry Wine.
Lapins mixes fresh cherry and spice aromas with elegant floral notes and leaves red cherry and plum fruit flavours lingering on the palate. It is best served chilled or on ice.
Dry-style Sweetheart (Now sold out, as it proved so popular), combined black cherry aromas with hints of vanilla, coconut, tropical fruit and peach.
Our 2017 variety tempts with tropical fruits, cherry cola, figs and a hint of coconut and banoffee pie. A mouth filling and complex, long-lasting finish.
Our 2016 variety shows strawberry, banana, spice and florals on the nose, with a sweet, tropical fruit entry on the palette along with red berry fruits to finish.
Our three varietals are produced in partnership with award-winning New Zealand winemakers, Vinpro.
From the initial harvest, to ageing and bottling, every element of Ripponvale Cherry Wine is crafted in the stunning, mountainous land of Central Otago.
