Richmond Plains Organic Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Richmond Plains Organic Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2017 $22 Grown in the gloriously weedy, certified organic vineyard owned and lovingly tended by Lars and Sam Jensen, the Richmond Plains sauvignon is nothing short of a Nelson icon.

Richmond Plains Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Richmond Plains Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2015 $21 ★★★★ Fact: Richmond Plains produced New Zealand’s first sauvignon blanc from fully-certified organic and biodynamic grapes years ago, and they’re still doing excellent work.  Floral and forward, it’s stacked with peach and passionfruit, tangy citrus and even a squeak of feijoa makes it in there.  It’s a sauvignon […]

Richmond Plains Nelson Chardonnay 2014

Richmond Plains Nelson Chardonnay 2014 $25 ★★★½ The team at Richmond Plains has been quietly bottling rather lovely, fully certified organic, biodynamically produced wines for ages – and this is a darn drinkable example.

Richmond Plains Nelson Chardonnay 2011 $19 ★★★½ This smells like a peach cupcake with grapefruit icing, it’s seriously tangy and tropical with lovely concentration and a seam of toasty oak to wrap up the finish.  Delicious with pan-seared scallops topped with toasted almonds. www.richmondplains.co.nz
