"Fresh, crisp and delicately pungent Sauvignon Blanc with capsicum, gooseberry, pink grapefruit and passionfruit flavours. A dry, silken-textured wine with appealing purity. Great value at this price" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Aug 2019

Light straw with green hues in the glass. Multifaceted exhibiting vibrant aromas of pink grapefruit, passionfruit, gooseberries and currant with a touch of herbal infusion. Weighty mouthfeel with intense although refined flavours finishing with a crisp, delectable acidity. Drinking well now; this wine can be enjoyed until late 2021.

The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is a blend from multiple vineyard sites throughout Marlborough, with a portion from the Awatere Valley and the balance from the Wairau Valley. Grapes were crushed and destemmed prior to pressing and fermentation was induced by the introduction of carefully selected yeast strains. Fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures to preserve the lifted aromatics in this wine.

Moderate yields, warm Summer temperatures and settled harvest weather conditions made for a happy winemaking team and some outstanding flavor in our Sauvignon Blanc fruit. With vigilant and timely picking decisions winemakers were able to ensure their principles of high quality and capture those enticing Marlborough flavours that create Mount Riley’s classic and highly sought-after Estate Sauvignon Blanc.

Food Pairing: Great as an aperitif or match with seafood, smoked fish, fresh salads or chargrilled vegetables.
