    Michael Cooper's Buyers Guide to New Zealand Wines 2012

    The 2010 (****) is Mount Riley’s ‘best effort’ from the vintage. Mouth filling, it is fresh and aromatic, with rich, dry passionfruit, capsicum and lime flavours, punchy, tangy and long.

    Mount Riley is a moderately large Marlborough winery with over 100 hectares of vineyards spread around the Wairau Valley. Their Limited Release Sauvignon Blanc is a small production wine made from the very best fruit each year selected after an extensive blind tasting. In 2010 the successful vineyard was the home block that surrounds the winery. Rich, tangy wine with impressive drive. Passion fruit, red capsicum, mineral and lemon grass flavours reflect a wine with strong varietal character. Linear and power with an impressively lingering finish.

    Your Home & Garden Magazine, February 2011 "Magnificence from Mount Riley"

    A classic Marlborough wine with pungency, power and purity. A limited-edition label that still gives you change out of $20.

    Rich, tangy wine with impressive drive. Passionfruit, red capsicum, mineral and lemongrass flavours reflect a wine with strong varietal character. Linear and powerful with an impressive lingering finish.
