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.

“A tightly framed Sauvignon showing aromas of dried herbs and subtle mineral notes. The palate is juicy and succulent with excellent acidity providing lovely crisp finish. The high level of concentration, structure and overall balance indicate the wine will evolve gracefully over the next few years. At its best: mid 2008 to 2011.” **** 88 - 91 Wine Orbit 2008
