    Wine NZ Magazine, Autumn 2011 - Top 5 under $25

    Mount Riley Chardonnay offers amazing value. Showing some toasty-oak and stone-fruits on the nose. Soft and round in the mouth with apple and lemon fruit-flavours that are ripe and weighty with definite appeal. Fresh acidity and balanced alcohol lend harmony to the palate.

    Winestate Magazine, July/August 2010

    Elegant, fruit-driven style (50% barrel-fermented), with vibrant, peachy flavours to the fore, a hint of butterscotch and fresh, appetising acidity.

    Otago Daily Times, Wednesday, 19 May 2010, Charmian Smith, Best Under $20

    For many years Mount Riley has consistently offered good value wines. This is fragrant with hints of tropical fruit backed by buttery hints of caramel and creamy finish.

    Wine NZ Magazine, Autumn 2010

    Pale. Lime and floral notes on the nose. Palate is creamy textured and citrussy in flavour with melon, quince, clove and herbal notes. A fresh, bright finish.

Blended from Chardonnay fermented in stainless steel and French oak barrels resulting in a wine with bright fruit forward characters yet complexity and depth of flavour. An approachable wine with stonefruit, melon and citrus flavours.
