Richmond Plains Sauvignon-blanc

Richmond Plains

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.

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.

The old vines are on Scott Henry trellising whilst the new vines were trellised on vertical shoot position. A long sunny autumn produced excellent quality fruit with great flavours. Fruit was picked on the 7th of April, crushed and de-stemmed before being cool fermented to preserve the vibrant, fresh Sauvignon characters.

This wine is suitable for a vegan diet.
