Judges Comments:

What do an accountant, a lawyer and a farmer-turned-winemaker have in common? They are all part of the close-knit family producing Mount Riley wines in Marlborough which was started in 1992. The ripe Pinot Noir grapes were from the Southern end of the Marlborough Valley producing a wine that has bright cherry and strawberry flavours. The wine is soft and mouth-filling with a long caressing finish; almost a cuddle in a glass.

Pairing Recommendation:

Complementing a wide range of dishes from reasonably robust to restrained and elegant. Great with the Sunday roast, burger and ribs or steak, sausages and game, take to a pot-luck dinner or BBQ. Versatile enough for antipasti, cheese, pizza and pasta, a light lunch or a summer’s day picnic.
