Riverby Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
A single-vineyard wine, from the heart of the Wairau Valley, the 2010 vintage is ripely scented and full-bodied, with melon/lime flavours and crisp acidity. Tangy and sweet-fruited, it shows good depth.

Smells of lychees and tinned chestnuts and has a soft, restrained but balanced palate.

Ken Gargett (2004 Vintage) says
Here's a NZ sauvignon blanc that you might have to search for a wee bit (that was for you Kiwis) but it is certainly worth the hunt. In the first instance I liked this wine as much for the trout on the label as the wine in the bottle. But it stood tall among a massive number of NZ sauvignon blancs as a really interesting, harmonious wine without too much of the.. .er.. .wee wee character of a few others.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
A single-vineyard wine, grown in Jacksons Road in the heart of the Wairau Valley, the 2003 vintage is a crisp, citrusy, gently herbaceous wine. The 2004 is full-bodied, with decent depth of fresh, lively melon/lime flavours.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
A single-vineyard wine, grown in the heart of the Wairau Valley, the 2002 vintage is weighty (14 per cent alcohol) and dry, with strong, ripe tropical-fruit flavours and a rounded finish.
