2016 Sauvignon Blanc Two Rivers of Marlborough
|Origin||New Zealand, South Island|
Grassy, herbal and loaded with gooseberry and lime fruit. Lovely steely element to finish. On a sunny day (as this is), the appeal of this style is undeniable. Drinking range: 2017 - 2018 Rating: 17 Richard Hemming - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jul 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
There's no shortage of the assertive scents of grapefruit and passion fruit on this classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc whose tropical, passion fruit flavours deliver a richness of fruit texture that could be overwhelming but instead is nicely reined in on the finish by its refreshingly grapefruit zesty dryness.

This is a stunning and exceptionally aromatic Sauvignon Blanc from the top flight Two Rivers Estate. It is made from no less than five different vineyards which layers the tropical and citrus notes in this superb wine. (Daily Mail) Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (May 2017)
A convergence of flavours from five separate vineyards located in the Awatere, Southern Valleys and Rapaura sub regions, this is classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at its finest. Harvested at optimum ripeness, the grapes were gently pressed and fermented, at cool temperatures, in stainless steel to maximise fruit purity and character. The wine was then aged on fine lees for 3 months, adding texture, complexity and increased mouth-feel to the palate. An abundance of blackcurrant, white peach and chalky aromas lead to a palate which is dry and refreshing with great concentration, beautiful fruit purity and moutherwatering acidity.

Two Rivers of Marlborough
David Clouston is originally from Marlborough, and after 22 vintages abroad from Oregon to Chile, Corsica to Alsace, he returned home and set about exploring the valleys and diverse terroirs of Marlborough. The main production is the Sauvignon made from fruit from both the Awatere and Wairau river valleys, whence the 'Two Rivers of Marlborough' name, but his hillside Pinot Noir is showing great potential.
This case is just the ticket for showing friends and family at Christmas that not all 'dry white wine' is born the same. Let us take you on an adventure from the Loire Vallet to New Zealand, by way of some German Rieslings. We've even included a Grand Cru Chablis and an award winning Verdicchio for you to really show off with. The perfect accompaniment to fish on Christmas Eve, or canapes throughout Christmas day. Or why not pair your turkey with Macon Charnay - you won't look back!
We all know that great wines come from all over the world - and so it would be crazy for us not to have put together a top Christmas selection from our winemakers in the New World. This gorgeous mixture includes a bargain Sparkler from South Africa, crisp NZ Sauvignon, a monumental Chardonnay from the pioneering Brajkowrich family in New Zealand through to a Rhone Ranger in California, a sun packed Aussie Shiraz and the Classically shaped Patagonian Pinot Noir from Bodegas Chacra. These are fine wines from great producers, hand picked for you to provide balance and excitement with your Christmas drinking.
