Established in 2004, Two Rivers of Marlborough takes its name from the iconic rivers that feed the wine growing heart of Marlborough’s renowned Wairau and Awatere Valleys. It was in the Awatere valley, overlooking the braided river, that founder and winemaker David Clouston spent his childhood. He now lives in the Wairau valley, where he has made his home and his mark on the wine industry.
Two Rivers of Marlborough's mission is to select the finest parcels of fruit from the banks of both the Wairau and Awatere rivers and to craft wines that express the different microclimates peculiar to these two rivers.
The ‘Altitude’ Pinot Noir is the pinnacle of the Two Rivers range. Only 10 very special barrels (coopers: Ana Selection, Sylvain, Mercurey) were classed superior enough to make the ‘Altitude’ blend. 80% of the fruit was from Ward, the southern most village in the Awatere Valley (Francis vineyard) with clay rich soils. The remainder of the fruit was from the Wairau Valley (Rive Vineyard). This wine offers an insight into the Two Rivers’ philosophy of being at the forefront of super premium winemaking with a dedication to finding the extremely unique and special micro climates hidden deep in the valleys of this world famous winegrowing region.
Smokey, savoury aromas with dark cherry and hints of black olive.
