Description

House Favorite NZ Sauvignon Blanc

Mount Riley was founded in 1992, when owner John Buchanan decided to leave his job with the second largest winery in New Zealand to go back to his roots. John is a fifth generation Marlborough citizen and Mount Riley is a true family winery; with John’s daughter Amy managing winery operations and his son-in-law, Amy’s husband, Matt Murphy as the winemaker.

Mount Riley’s 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is a blend from multiple vineyard sites from the Awatere Valley and the Wairau Valley in Marlborough. 80% estate fruit from a family owned and operated winery. Grapes were crushed and destemmed prior to pressing and fermentation occurred in stainless steel at cool temperatures to preserve the lifted aromatics in this wine. Grapes were crushed and destemmed prior to pressing and fermentation was induced by the introduction of carefully selected yeast strains. The wine was fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures to preserve the lifted aromatics in this wine.

Complex with overt aromas of passionfruit, pink grapefruit, citrus and greener components of crushed herb, capsicum and gooseberries. A fresh, vibrant wine with a crisp, lingering finish. It is drinking well now; this wine can be enjoyed for several years. Great as an aperitif or match with seafood, smoked fish, fresh salads or chargrilled vegetables.
