Richmond Plains

Originally founded by Yorkshireman David Holmes (the Sauvignon is named after him) and now the fulfilment of a dream for Lars and Samantha Jensen who bought the estate in 2008. This environmentally diverse estate is in Nelson region at the top end of North Island where the maritime breezes aid organic wine-making. With their Pinot Noir they make both red and (faintly pink!) white.
Vineyard size 8 hectares. Organic since 1991.

Description

Blanc de Noir, Richmond Plains

Blanc de Noir is an unusual white wine because it is made from the red grape, Pinot Noir. This gives the wine a faint pink colour.
It’s aromatic with citrus blossom, green pear and biscuit character on the nose.
On the palate it is full and fruity with attractive pear, baked apple, peaches and nectarine flavours.
It has very attractive tropical and lime blossom characters with an exotic spicy finish.
Characterful, charming and seductive.

“Delightfully fresh and fragrant, the bouquet shows nectarine, mandarin, rockmelon and floral characters, followed by a juicy palate that is vibrant and mouth-wateringly tasty. The wine offers lively fruit flavours and fine texture, wonderfully structured by refreshing acidity.”
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2016
