Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Light straw colour in the glass with a perfumed bouquet with nuances of lime, pear and citrus blossom underpinned by spice and nectarine characters. Palate is dry with intense ripe fruit flavours with a crisp, racy and refreshing long finish of mineral and slate.

Our 2017 Riesling from Mount Riley is made from grapes grown on Mount Riley’s Litchfield and Anderson Vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. A perfect growing season with warm summer temperatures gave the perfect conditions for excellent flavour development and the remarkable aromatics that this classic wine is known for. Grapes were harvested in pristine condition then crushed and destemmed. Fermentation was carried out at cool temperatures in stainless steel to achieve absolute purity of fruit. Drinking well now, but this wine will continue to improve and develop until 2022."


ANZWA 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"A stunning off-dry rendition, exhibiting fine texture and taut mouthfeel, enhanced by whispering sweetness and racy acidity with bright lemon and fresh apple notes."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, November 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"This is refreshingly fragrant with its scent of lemon zest, honey and flower nectar and the flavours are bright, clean and aromatic with light viscosity to the texture, juicy citrus and apricot fruit, just a touch of sweetness and refreshing apple acidity to the bright zesty finish. Well-balanced and drinkable."
