Editorial Reviews for Richmond Plains Sauvignon Blanc
Less intensely herbal than many NZ Sauvies with more orchard fruit and sage, topped with notes of oregano. This is also rounder, lusher and softer than many examples, with a little less verve and ripe fruit that tends to the peachy end of the spectrum. 87pts
