Two Rivers Clouston & Co Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017
Two Rivers Clouston & Co Marlborough Pinot Noir is a juicy and savoury style of Pinot Noir. Dark ruby colour. The bouquet opens with lifted aromas of violets, wild thyme, red fruits and a savoury mushroom earthiness. The dry, youthful palate has light and silky tannins, elegant structure and a beautiful acid backbone. Bright red cherry and crushed raspberry flavours interlacing with forest floor, coffee bean, pepper and charming oak spices.
100% Pinot Noir. Premium estate grown wine.
Clouston & Co, circa 1895, was Marlborough’s general merchant, trading and importing wine, wool, and agricultural supplies. Five generations later, David Clouston’s rich family history in Marlborough, New Zealand led to the creation of Clouston & Co wines in 2017. The Clouston & Co of today produces estate grown wines using New Zealand’s unique soil, climate, and pure aquifers. These three ingredients create a unique terroir producing grapes that are expertly crafted together with a family tradition of wine, 5 generations in the making.
David Clouston is also founder and winemaker of Two Rivers.

Cameron Douglas, MS – 94 POINTS
No mistaking the scents of Pinot Noir with dark red berries and plums, red flowers and dry stony earthy qualities surrounded by toasty wood and baking spice suggestions. Dry on the palate with a youthful tension from medium acidity and abundant moderately fine tannins then a core of fruit flavours that reflect the nose. Dry, lengthy finish, youthful and still developing its harmonies. Drink now preferably with food and through 2024.
