Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2015
Richmond Plains is certified organic by BioGro New Zealand and biodynamic by Demeter.
Richmond Plains produced New Zealand’s first Sauvignon Blanc from both certified organic and biodynamic grapes.
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.
Nose: Fresh herbaceous characters with gooseberry and capsicum notes.
Palate: 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.
Vintage: 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 at the beginning of April.
Wine Making: All fruit was crushed and de-stemmed before being cool fermented to preserve the vibrant, fresh Sauvignon characters.
Diet: Suitable for a vegetarian diet.
Alcohol: 13 % Acidity: 7.2 Residual Sugar: 3.2 g/l
It's intensely aromatic on the nose showing ripe citrus, peach and feijoa aromas with a touch of lime zest. The palate is juicy, vibrant and full of attractive flavours, finishing long and refreshing. A real crowd-pleaser.
