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 an old vine single vineyard in the Wairau Valley with extremely stony soils. 100% Mendoza clone. Hand harvested, lightly whole bunch pressed with wild ferment in barrel and intermittent stirring of the lees for 10 months. Partial malolactic fermentation, followed by 11 months ageing in 20% new and seasoned French barrels followed by light filtration before bottling.
Golden straw in colour with aromas of white flowers and camomile mingling with honeycombe and nutmeg. Juicy pineapple and nectarine flavours with oak offering support, and underlying old vine minerality.
