Description

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.

Sourced from a single vineyard in the Southern Valleys sub-region of Marlborough where the soil structure has a high content of clay loam over ancient gravels. The shallow, fast draining, low fertile soil helps to produce lush, aromatic, ripe wines with structure. The grapes were thinned to one bunch per shoot to increase concentration and flavour. All leaves were removed from the fruiting zone to achieve maximum ripeness and to avoid any unripe characters. The grapes were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed directly into 7 year old hogshead barrels for wild fermentation. Aged on full yeast lees, and stirred regularly for 10 months with a small portion going through malo-lactic fermentation. Not fined with a light filtration prior to bottling.

A savoury nose with aromas of lemon balm, lanolin oil and apricot kernel, combined with biscuity notes.
