Location

Riverby Estate derives its name from the tranquil Opawa River, which winds through the Marlborough Region of New Zealand. The river’s rich resources were invaluable to the local farmers as well as the source of their favourite meal; the Rainbow Trout.

Riverby Estate is ideally positioned in the very heart of Marlborough, New Zealand. Situated at Jacksons Road, Blenheim, immediately adjacent to renowned Marlborough Vineyards; Cloudy Bay, Stoneleigh and Allan Scott.

The Winemaker

Prominent Marlborough Winemaker, Dr. John Forrest, is Riverby Estate’s first Winemaker. His philosophy in making the Riverby Estate Sauvignon Blanc was ‘to let the vineyard express itself’. In the past, John has won many awards for his excellent winemaking skills.

The Vines & Viticulture

Together with vine trimming and leaf plucking during the growing season, an open grapevine canopy is created with ample sunlight and wind penetration.Viticulture practices are used to ensure that the yield is below 9.5 tonnes/ha, thus ensuring fruit with intense varietal flavours.
