SKU #1423562 93 points Sam Kim

Outer quote mark It is beautifully lifted on the nose showing white flesh nectarine, green rockmelon, feijoa and lime zest characters. The palate delivers excellent fruit intensity and purity, together with fine texture and perfectly pitched acidity. It is instantly appealing and offers terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2021. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a ripe fruity wine that leads with heady aromas of candied pineapple, lemon-lime, green pepper and grass. It's clean and crisp with bright if slightly searing acidity and a chalky texture. (CP) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Intense lime and grapefruit flavors are mouthwatering on a light frame. A touch of fresh ginger lingers on the finish. Drink now. (MW) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

K&L Notes

Mount Riley was founded in 1992 by John Buchanan. 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. Matt was the winemaker at Craggy Range for 7 years before marrying Amy and joining Mount Riley. The estate is composed of 10 vineyards in Marlborough and the winery is five miles south of Blenheim. Each vineyard brings unique qualities and terroir to the Marlborough blend. The Mount Riley 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.
