Richmond Plains Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 22-Oct-2012
Fruit certified Biogro organic and Demeter biodynamic. Cool-fermented to 13.5% alc. and 3.2 g/L rs. Bright, full, even, pale straw-yellow colour. This has a soft, full nose of fruit aromatics in the cooler spectrum, showing gooseberries, nettles and fresh herbs, along with capsicums and white floral notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, cool fruit flavours of gooseberries, herbs and minerals are expressed with restraint, alongside lacy acidity. The mouthfeel is smooth and harmonious, but fresh with good brightness and energy. A little alcohol drive is noticeable, leading to a subtly flavoured, long finish with herbal and nettle-like nuances. This is a fine, smooth, cool-spectrum Sauvignon Blanc that will develop more flavour richness over the next 2 years. Match with salads and vegetables. Vegan wine. 17.0+/20 Oct 2012 RRP $19.99
