Richmond Plains Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Richmond Plains Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2009
New Zealand, $14.99 +756874

I’ll cop to getting a bit of palate fatigue from New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, but only because they are so prevalent due to their excellent value. The key is not to break from NZ SB altogether but to move north of Marlborough to sample different styles. This offering from organic winemaker Richmond Plains is still a South Island wine, but it’s from Nelson (which is on the north part of the island) so its style has less of that hard acidic bite you find in Oyster Bay or Kim Crawford. It also has strong citrus notes, making it a good match for ceviche.
