Sauvignon Blanc, Richmond Plains

£12.99

This example is typically fresh and vibrant with characteristic gooseberry and herbaceous aromas. On the palate there’s zesty citrus and passionfruit with a nettly mineral background. A versatile and very refreshing dry white.

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.
