Mount Riley Seventeen Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2016)

The very classy 2016 vintage (5*) is a single-vineyard wine, grown in the Southern Valleys, hand-picked, and fermented and lees-aged for eight months in seasoned French oak casks. Delicious now, it is full-bodied, with concentrated, ripe tropical-fruit flavours, a subtle seasoning of nutty oak, and notable complexity and length. A finely textured, very harmonious wine, it’s a drink-now or cellaring proposition.
