Two Rivers 2017 ‘Isle of Beauty’ Rosé and 2016 ‘Clos des Pierres’ Chardonnay

18-Oct-2017
The ‘Two Rivers’ Marlborough label of Dave Clouston is rapidly becoming one of the stars of the region. Dave is Marlborough born and bred, so is intimate with the performance of different varieties in sites around the sub-regions. His own ‘Brookby Hill vineyard acquired in December 2015 is a prominent source of his highest quality fruit, the vines planted in 2000. Dave has vintage experience overseas, and his time in Corsica has inspired his rosé style. He has now renamed it ‘Isle of Beauty’ to help those with difficulty working out the French translation of L’Ille de Beauté as it was formerly called. No doubt the ‘Clos de Pierres’ Chardonnay, named after the ‘place of stones’ was also French inspired. These two wines are features of the Two Rivers range, and I review the new releases, the 2017 Rosé and 2016 Chardonnay. www.tworivers.co,nz
