Natalie's Score: 92/100
This white wine is herbal and zesty! Medium-bodied, no oak, great for seafood and vegetarian dishes. Vibrant aromas of gooseberry and grapefruit on the palate, with lots of mouth-watering acidity for a range of dishes from salads to seafood. This is a great seafood wine from New Zealand's South Island wine growing region. Mount Riley is a zesty Sauvignon Blanc with tropical and fresh herbal notes. Zippy acidity too with a full mid palate.
Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: chicken Alfredo, seafood, vegetarian dishes.

Reviews and Ratings
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A superbly crafted Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand. The bouquet is divine and most inviting - gooseberry, citrus, herbs, grapefruit - great acidity and balance. Lingering finish.
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Pale lemon green colour with green apples, starfruit, elderflower, green pepper freshness and a grassy leek herbal note. Flavours are young and zippy with tart pineapple, grapefruit citrus, kiwi and touches of asparagus. High acidity balances well with the fruitiness. Pair with fresh fish, and herbed goats cheese. 90 Points - January 2018
|Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:|
Tasted March 4th, 2018. Colour, pale straw. Legs medium. Aromas and flavours of, citrus lime,grapefruit, white peach, pear and lemon grass. Taste dry, fruity, mouthwatering plus, light body, refreshing. Finishes with citrus and refreshing intensity.
This is a great wine to drink on its own to get your taste buds going. I only got to try a glass as it quickly disappears when you are with others. Cold shrimp, white chocolate.
Good value wine.
|Mount Riley 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is gently herbal and zesty. The South Island SB is medium-bodied, great for seafood and vegetarian dishes. Look for ripe gooseberries and pink grapefruit flavours on the palate. Great acidity on this wine to accompany any grilled seafood dish. - Community Wine Reviews|
