Mount Riley and Picton Bay 2015 White, and 2014 Red Releases

Mount Riley is one of the fiercely independent family owned wineries of Marlborough. The Buchanan family established the company in 1992 and it is now one of the most widely seen and respected providers of quality and value wine. The Buchanans operate a number of vineyards, the most important in quality terms being the ’17 Valley’ vineyard established in 1996. The Anderson site, established in 1980, the Litchfield vineyard, established in 1984, the Dillon vineyard, 1996, the Waihopi, in 2002, and the Winery site, established in 2001 show the breadth and spread of the vineyards as well as the maturity of the vines. The Buchanans supplement their estate fruit with grapes from contact growers. Here, I review the new release 2015 Picton Bay and Mount Riley whites and rosé, and 2014 reds.
