Richmond Plains 'Blue Moon' 2012 Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 13% alc
Nose: An enticing fragrance that has depth and charm, but also a sense of place woven amongst the soft lemon scented fruits; barrel ferment and lees ideas, hints of hay and soft herb notes all say Sauvignon Blanc; medium+ complexity.
Palate: I really like the completeness of this wine on the palate - a wonderful seamless harmony between the fruits, acid and gentle oak flavors; medium+ length with a line of minerality.
5 Stars (90 pts)
A wine to consider slowly and let the textures fill the palate as much as the flavors - a very nice barrel fermented style!
