Mount Riley Marlborough Pinot Noir 2020 90 JS
Mt. Riley is a family owned and run New Zealand winery. Owner John Buchanan and daughter Amy run the day to day operations. Amy's husband, Matt was the winemaker at Craggy Range and brings his expertise to the winery. Mount Riley owns 10 vineyards in Marlborough and the winery is five miles south of Blenheim. Each vineyard brings unique qualities and terroir to the Marlborough blend.
Dry Weather conditions through Pinot Noir flowering with long settled periods, resulting in good ripeness and fruit intensity. Our 2020 Pinot Noir is a blend sourced from three of our Marlborough vineyards situated in the Southern Valleys sub-region. Diversity of clone allowed us to make a complex and complete wine with vibrant, pure fruit character and depth of flavor. Grapes were cold soaked, fermented in small parcels and aged for seven months in French oak barriques.
Deep-red with garnet and ruby hues. Aromas of ripe cherry and plum characters are supported by hints of savory spice and dried herb. An approachable with soft tannins and intense fruit flavor. Silky texture and great length. 13.0% Alc.
Great as an aperitif or with savory tomato or mushroom based dishes, salmon, lean red meat or pasta.
