A sophisticated and elegant Sauvignon Blanc from a boutique producer. A wine that is beautifully refreshing but not aggressive, with aromatics that are expressive but not overpowering. Superb quality, Riverby is a neighbour of Cloudy Bay and produces that are consistently under-priced.

Overview

Grape

Sauvignon Blanc

Its Origins

A major factor in Riverby’s success is the total control over all grape production on the single estate vineyard. A significant portion of the vineyard consists of vines with considerable age and this is complemented by slightly younger vines utilising modern clones. This combination of vine age and meticulous clonal selection is readily apparent in the high quality fruit being produced. Vines were first planted in 1989; on land that had previously been used for cropping and sheep farming. Further plantings have continued over the years, until now over 70 hectares are planted out in Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Semillon, and Syrah. The most recent planting is of Gruner Veltliner. As part of Riverby’s focus on viticultural excellence, yields are kept very low and several varieties are hand picked. Sustainable grape-growing techniques are practiced throughout the whole grape-growing and winemaking cycle.

What The Critics Say

93/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2017 vintage)

"Bright and beautifully expressed, the inviting bouquet shows Gala apple, grapefruit, feijoa and lemon zest characters. The palate is concentrated and focused, delivering pristine fruit flavours together with fine texture and vibrant acidity. The wine is intense and flavoursome, and offers excellent drinking. At its best: now to 2020. $19.00. www.riverbyestate.com. March 2018." Drink 2018 - 2020
