Two Rivers Brookby Hill Syrah Marlborough New Zealand
Established in 2004, Two Rivers of Marlborough takes its name from the iconic rivers that feed the wine growing heart of Marlborough’s renowned Wairau and Awatere Valleys. It was in the Awatere valley, overlooking the braided river, that founder and winemaker David Clouston spent his childhood. He now lives in the Wairau valley, where he has made his home and his mark on the wine industry. Two Rivers of Marlborough’s mission is to select the finest parcels of fruit from the banks of both the Wairau and Awatere rivers and to craft wines that express the different microclimates peculiar to these two rivers. Our aim at Two Rivers of Marlborough is to capture and emphasise the intense power of flavour for which Marlborough is famous while adding complexity and elegance to our wines through traditional winemaking techniques – a single-minded focus on crafting exceptional wines. Dark ruby in colour with a garnet hue. Aromas of black peppercorn and charred meats combine with dried thyme and Herbes de Provence to create a botanical and savoury earthiness on the bouquet. The palate is in the leathery, earthy spectrum with blueberry and black fruit flavours shining through. This wine is bright and fresh with great concentration, focus and energy.
