2020 Riverby Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

92 Points Richard Caro
In stock
A sophisticated and elegant Sauvignon Blanc from a boutique producer. This finer example of the classic style is beautifully refreshing, but not aggressive, with aromatics that are expressive but never overpowering. Riverby is a neighbour of Cloudy Bay and produces wines that are consistently under-priced and very high in quality. Don't be put off by the cheap price!

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

94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2019 vintage)

"It is fabulously fruited and intensely aromatic on the nose showing green rockmelon, feijoa, nectarine and lemon peel characters, followed by a powerfully expressed palate that is bright and flavoursome. It is varietally pure and gorgeously attractive with a lengthy delicious finish. www.riverbyestate.com. Oct 2019." Drink 2019 - 2022
