Black Cottage 2016 ‘Reserve’ Marlborough Chardonnay and Central Otago Pinot Noir

The ‘Black Cottage’ has proven to be the ideal second brand for Dave Clouston of Two Rivers. While the wines are generally sourced from Marlborough, where Dave has insider and expert knowledge of sites and sub-regions, the brand also encompasses fruit from Central Otago, for Pinot Noir with a difference to that of Marlborough. The Black Cottage wines aren’t quite as serious as the Two Rivers wines, but are more accessible to the plate and pocket. Therein lies the reasons for the success of the brand. Here, I review two 2016 Black Cottage ‘Reserve’ wines, the Marlborough Chardonnay and Central Otago Pinot Noir.
