This product is currently sold out.
An incredible value Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Mount Riley capture those enticing Marlborough flavours that make this internationally classic and highly sought-after Estate Sauvignon Blanc.
Mount Riley Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc grapes from multiple vineyard sites throughout Marlborough. Mainly sourced from Awatere Valley and Wairau Valley, the grapes were crushed and destemmed prior to pressing and fermentation was induced by the introduction of carefully selected yeast strains. The resulting juice was fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures to preserve the lifted aromatics in this wine.
The wine is just what you would expect from the Marlborough region. Light straw with green hues on the pour, the citrus, gooseberry and grassy aromas welcome you in the glass. The taste is multifaceted, exhibiting vibrant pink grapefruit, passionfruit, gooseberries and currant with a touch of herbal infusion. It has a surprisingly weighty mouthfeel and refined flavours for a wine at this price point and it finishes with a crisp, delectable acidity.
Great as an aperitif or match with goats cheese, seafood, smoked fish, fresh salads or chargrilled vegetables.
