Two Rivers takes its name from the iconic rivers of Marlborough – the Wairau and Awatere rivers. Energetic and talented, founder David Clouston grew up in Marlborough and with 25 years of worldwide winemaking experience, is the driving force behind Two Rivers. David’s bold approach to winemaking and his desire to push boundaries makes for distinctive and innovative wines. Their multi-varietal Rosé, is one of the most acclaimed New Zealand rosés, with a real cult following. They are also celebrated for their complex, elegant and textured Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
This rosé shows a great insight into the attention to detail that the winemaker David Clouston conveys in his wines. This rose is the most awarded rose in New Zealand and it is easy to see why. Each of the varieties are grown and picked to make a rosé with each grape variety being given its own plot where it can really shine. It spends 10 weeks ageing in both stainless steel tanks as well as concrete eggs to help the texture. This is a firm staff favourite!
