Richmond Plains Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Regular price $21.99 NZD

Vegan Organic

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 gooseberry and capsicum notes.  Delicious gooseberry, capsicum, passionfruit and lime / citrus 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 from the 7th of April, crushed and de-stemmed before being cool fermented to preserve the vibrant, fresh Sauvignon characters.

Diet: This wine is suitable for a vegan diet.

Certified Organic: Asure Quality.

Analysis:  Alcohol 13%, Acidity 7.4 g/L, Residual Sugar 3.5 g/L  

It is attractively fruited on the nose showing passionfruit, feijoa, lime zest and lemongrass characters. The palate delivers vibrant fruit flavours and fine texture, brilliantly structured by crisp acidity, finishing long and mouth-watering. A delightfully fresh and lively sauvignon with pristine fruit flavours.
