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 MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jul 2017)

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.
There's such a appetising zip to good Sauvignon Blanc. It makes the perfect refreshing aperitif and richer examples match seafood so well. Here are four of the best to inject some life into tired palates.
