The Riverlore illustration is of a Taniwha. In New Zealand mythology, Taniwha (pronunciation: tanifa) are creatures that live in deep pools in rivers, dark caves, or in the sea, especially in places with dangerous currents or deceptive breakers. They may be considered highly respected protective guardians of people and places, or in some traditions as dangerous, predatory beings.

Riverlore wines represent all that is great about New Zealand. Marlborough in particular has the enviable reputation of being the country's leading producer of premium wines. It has been said that there is no wine anywhere in the world that tastes like the wine of Marlborough – the balance of extraordinary purity and intensity of flavours set around impressive aroma, distinctive fruit characteristics and appealing balanced acidity.

These are stylish, exciting wines that surprise and delight.
