Richmond Plains Sauvignon Blanc 2017
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.
