Richmond Plains and Te Mania 2014 Nelson Whites

The Jensen and Harrey families operate their ‘Richmond Plains’ and ‘Te Mania’ Nelson wine businesses together, both being shareholders in Appleby Vintners, the company that has Steve Gill as the winemaker and Kris Cumpstone as the vineyard manager. While Lars Jensen has a responsibility for the sales and marketing of both brands, Jon Harrey looks after the operational duties. The two labels differ in vineyard sources and of course history, but as time progresses, their commonalities increase. The Jensens of ‘Richmond Plains’ began with organics and biodynamics as a cornerstone of their philosophies, and the Harreys are now making a greater commitment to these practices at Te Mania. Here, I review a selection of 2014 whites from both brands.
