Altitude wines are single vineyard, alternative expressions, made when the moment strikes. This hedonistic wine is packed full of blueberry and red plum flavours mingled with bright chalky acidity. Ethereal and rustic with silky tannins and great energy. Winemaker's notes (Oct 2020)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

From the Saint Maur Vineyard - aromas and flavours of ripe, fresh and baked citrus fruits - lemon and grapefruit; apple and vanilla, cape gooseberry and peach. Nice and complex, enticing and curious. On the palate - there’s complexity and texture, fruit flavours and mineral, whispers of a flinty stony spice then a wild flowers suggestion. Plenty of acidity, medium (ish) weight, great balance and length. As the wine warms in glass - the better it gets. A very modern and appealing expression of SB. Best drinking from today and through 2023. Rating: 95 CamDouglasMS.com(Aug 2020)

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.
