Two Rivers ‘Convergence’ Sauvignon Blanc 2017

22-Nov-2017

Marlborough winemaker Dave Clouston is one of the region’s new stars, making increasingly excellent wines under his ‘Two Rivers’ and ‘Black Cottage’ labels. Dave is Marlborough and bred, and has a deep understanding of the different sub-regions and is aware of the best performing vineyards, as well as the suitability of the vine varieties in each area and site. This knowledge has enabled the rapid growth of his brands. Arguably his most successful wines are his rosé wines and of course, Sauvignon Blanc. Here, I review his premier fruit-focussed 2017 Sauvignon Blanc, the ‘Convergence’ named for the coming together of the vineyards of the Awatere and Wairau rivers to make top Marlborough wine. Dave acknowledges the challenges of the 2017 growing season, but so far, I see he has made very creditable wines. www.tworivers.co.nz
