Two Rivers 2018 ‘Convergence’ Sauvignon Blanc, ‘Clos des Pierres’ Chardonnay 2017 and ‘Tributary’ Pinot Noir 2016

12-Oct-2018

Dave Clouston is definitely one of Marlborough’s rising stars. Being a local, he lived on the land and is extremely familiar with the sub-regions and suitability of varieties to sites, as well as knowing the people who live on the land. This has given him advantages in making his ‘Two Rivers’ wines. David’s purchase of the established ‘Brookby Hill’ vineyard in the Southern Valleys at the end of 2015 has given him a more consistent supply of premium grapes. The vineyard is regarded as the ‘Home’ vineyard. Just as 2018 vintage was beginning, David opened his ‘Wine Studio’ winemaking facility in Cloudy Bay Business Park, and this will give him even greater control of how to handle his fruit. Things are exciting and on the upward swing for Dave Clouston. Here, I review his new release 2018 ‘Convergence’ Sauvignon Blanc, 2017 ‘Clos des Pierres’ Chardonnay and 2016 ‘Tributary’ Pinot Noir which incorporate new techniques and more radical equipment such as concrete egg and amphora. www.tworivers.co.nz
