Richmond Plains Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Regular price $21.99 NZD
Richmond Plains produced New Zealand’s first certified organic Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir wine.
Sauvignon Blanc is ideally suited to the Nelson region where a combination of warm, sunny days and cool autumn nights, help to create the intense varietal flavours for which this flagship New Zealand wine is recognised.
Tasting: Fresh herbaceous characters with kiwifruit, green apple notes. Delicious gooseberry, capsicum, passionfruit and lime flavours with a lovely background of mineral and nettle tones. Fresh, fruity & vibrant with good weight and length. A very versatile and popular wine that complements a wide variety of food styles especially seafood and ideal as an aperitif.
Wine Making: The old vines are on Scott Henry trellising whilst the new vines were trellised on vertical shoot position. Fruit was picked at the end of March, crushed and de-stemmed before being cool fermented to preserve the vibrant, fresh Sauvignon characters.
Gold Medal: NZ Organic Wine awards.
Diet: This wine is suitable for a vegan diet.
Certified Organic: Asure Quality.
Analysis: Alcohol 13.5%, Acidity 7.3 g/L, Residual Sugar 4 g/L
Punchy and flavoursome, this is immediately appealing with kiwifruit, kafir lime, green apple and lemon zest aromas on the nose. The succulent palate delivers terrific fruit intensity and juicy acidity, making it delectable and fabulously drinkable.
