Wine Richmond Plains, Blue Moon Sauvignon Blanc, 2016

949 000
This Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most unique expressions of this variety. Using old vines, whole-bunch press and barrel fermentation, this wine goes against the norm of Sauvignon Blanc. Although creamy, the wine still expresses notes of fresh gooseberry and passion fruit.

White - An old-vine wine that challenges the conventional Sauvignon Blanc style but remains fresh and aromatic.

Tasting Notes:

Fresh herbaceous characters with gooseberry and capsicum notes. Delicious gooseberry, capsicum, passionfruit and lime/citrus flavours with a lovely background of mineral and nettle tones. Fresh, fruity & vibrant with good weight and length. A very versatile and popular wine that complements a wide variety of food styles especially seafood and ideal as an aperitif.

Gastronomy:

Because of vibrant acidity, the wine easily pairs with a variety of fish dishes, seafood appetizers, vinaigrette salads, chicken and many other foods.

Vineyards:

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.

Ageing method:

Barrel ageing.

Winemaking process:

The old vines are on Scott Henry trellising whilst the new vines were trellised on vertical shoot position. Fruit was picked from the 31st of March, crushed and de-stemmed before being cool fermented to preserve the vibrant, fresh Sauvignon characters.

Interesting notes:

Youthfully charming and beautifully fragrant, the bouquet shows green rockmelon, lemon/lime peel, apple and herbaceous characters. The palate is juicy and finely textured, displaying lovely fruit intensity and vibrancy, backed by crisp acidity - 4½ Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2019
