Description

Two Rivers Convergence Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Two Rivers Convergence Sauvignon Blanc is classy and intense. Bright straw colour with green hues. Explosive aromatics of white peach, gooseberry, fresh cuts grass and herbs like fennel and nettle. Dry and saline, the palate displays a stylish elegance, gravelly texture and crunchy acidity. Clean and fresh flavours of zesty lime citrus, passionfruit, gooseberry and lychee. Closes in a long, smooth steely mineral finish.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. A convergence of flavours from five separate vineyards in the Awatere, Southern Valleys and Rapaura sub-regions.

Harvesting of the grapes at optimum ripeness, then a gentle pressing. Fermentation at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve fruit characters. The wine ages on fine lees for 3 months in French barrels to add texture and complexity to the palate.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

Striking and intense, the gorgeous bouquet shows grapefruit, passionfruit, feijoa and kaffir lime characters. The palate delivers impressive fruit concentration and purity, brilliantly complemented by fine texture and bright acidity. Punchy and flavoursome, while remaining harmonious and wonderfully balanced. A hugely appealing Sauvignon. At its best: now to 2022.

 Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full with gentle concentration of white and green stonefruit aromas, along with gooseberry and fresh herb notes and suggestions of nuts and minerals. This has an underlying freshness and clarity, and is mouthwatering. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright and vibrant fruit flavours gooseberries with white and green stonefruits, and nuances of fresh herbs. The fruit has good presence and is mouthfilling with rich textures. Some phenolic grip, power and linear drive is present and the fruit is supported by fresh, lacy acidity. The wine flows to a very long and sustained finish. This is a surprisingly weighty and mouthfilling, textured Sauvignon Blanc with clarity of gooseberry, stonefruit and herb flavours with fresh acidity. Serve with salads and vegetables, and Mediterranean fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the ‘Richmond Brook’, ‘Dew’, ‘Coles’, ‘The Spring’ and ‘Grovetown’ vineyards in the Awatere, Southern Valleys and Rapaura sub-regions, vines 10-20 y.o., fermented in concrete egg, clay amphora and stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 3 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees in concrete.
