The Story

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.

All Richmond Plains grapes are grown on our own vineyard. Both the growing of our grapes and winemaking are certified organic by BioGro New Zealand.

Vegan: This wine is suitable for vegan diets.

Vintage: A hot, dry summer contributed to an early harvest with good quality fruit and excellent flavours. Fruit was picked in mid April.

Wine Making: All fruit was crushed and de-stemmed before being cool fermented to preserve the vibrant, fresh Sauvignon characters.
