Mount Riley is a family owned estate with strong traditional values and a guiding philosophy of being involved at all stages of the winemaking process, from the vineyard to the glass. Always in fine fashion and consistently so, an ambassador of fine Marlborough Pinot Noir to the world, Mount Riley can boast significant accolades at conspicuous wine competitions, from the ANZ Awards to the prestigious London International. Multiple vineyard parcels and clonal material construct a Marlborough Pinot Noir of great character, depth of flavour and exquisite charm.
Parcels of Pinot Noir are sourced from superior vineyards throughout Marlborough's Wairau Valley, including Mount Riley's very own, splendid Seventeen Valley vineyard. Diversity of terroirs and clonal material achieves a complex and complete wine with great fruit character and depth of flavour. The backbone of grapes comes from vines planted to stony unfertile blocks, perfect for the production of intensely flavoured Pinot Noir. A spectrum of clones is included, UCD 5 and 6, 10/5 and Dijon clones 115, 118, 375 and 777. Bunches are cold soaked, fermented in small individual batches on skins and treated to several months maturation in a selection of fine French oak barriques. Alcohol 13.0%
TASTING NOTES
Mid red colour, garnet/ ruby hues. Dark cherry and red berry fruit aromas are supported by hints of spice and earthiness. An approachable, elegant wine with soft tannins, delicious ripe red fruit flavours and concentration. Drinking well upon release, alongside salmon steak, escalope of veal or nicely dressed duck.

About Mount Riley Wines
At the northern tip of New Zealand's South Island, the waters of the Marlborough Sounds meet steep hills rising to the south-west, where the Richmond Ranges are dominated by the distinctive crag of Mount Riley
Inland, the mountains look down on the stony-soiled vineyards of the Wairau Valley. From here, and other famous parts of the Marlborough region, a reputation for outstanding wines has spread around the world. Distinct regional characteristics have been celebrated, since the first plantings in 1973. Mount Riley is the predominant peak in the Richmond Range of mountains that overlooks the Wairau Valley.
