2018 Mount Riley Sauvignon Blanc
Our Limited Release range is made in small amounts and sold through fine wine stores, restaurants and our cellar door.
Our Limited Release Sauvignon Blanc was made from a selection of our most expressive fruit from
the 2018 vintage. The wine was made from 100% Awatere Valley fruit from the Heard Family
Vineyard in the Lower Dashwood. The wine we’ve made shows impeccable fruit expression,
concentration and balance.
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.
