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 31st of March, 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.
