Tom's Notes: At this point most of you have heard me talk about Pinot Noir, I won't beat that dead horse, but this wine expresses so much of what I want from a Pinot Noir. It is light in body and color, it has a beautiful nose of cherry, earth, and strawberry. I still think Central Otago beats out Marlborough for the quality of Pinot Noir, but Central Otago cannot come close to this price.
Importer Tasting Notes:
An approachable, elegant wine with soft tannins, delicious bright red fruit flavors and great length of flavor.
The grapes for this wine were sourced from multiple vineyard sites throughout the Wairau Valley in Marlborough. Diversity of grape source and clonal material allowed Mount Riley to make a complex and complete wine with great fruit character and depth of flavour. Grapes were cold soaked, fermented in small parcels and aged for nine months in French barriques.
