    Huon Hooke of The Real Review gave 90 points and 4 stars.
    "Very light to pale colour. The aromas are young and bright, savoury and faintly sweaty and reductive; the palate rich and flavoursome yet also light, with a cleverly balanced touch of sweetness enhancing the fruit flavour."

A record breaking warm summer coupled with unseasonal late summer rain made the 2018 growing season hugely challenging. However, with vigilant and timely picking decisions we were able to ensure our
principles of high quality and capture those enticing Marlborough flavours that create Mount Riley’s classic
and highly sought after Estate Sauvignon Blanc.

Our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is a blend from multiple vineyard sites throughout Marlborough, with a portion
from the Awatere Valley and the balance from the Wairau Valley. Grapes were crushed and destemmed
prior to pressing and fermentation was induced by the introduction of carefully selected yeast strains. We
fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures to preserve the lifted aromatics in this wine.
