Two Rivers Tributary Pinot Noir 2018 Marlborough
David Clouston's acquisition of the Brookby Hill Vineyard in the Southern Vallesy sub region of Marlborough means he now has total control of the fruit he uses
David Clouston's acquisition of the Brookby Hill Vineyard in the Southern Valley sub region of Marlborough means he now has total control of the fruit he uses. The high lying vineyard has Loess and Clay soils which give good minerality and power to the vines. The grapes are hand picked and fermented part whole bunch and part destemmed in tank then passed into French oak barrels, 25% new, for 11 months. This impressive Pinot offers dark cherries, strawberries and minerals on the nose and again cherries and strawberries and plum stone freshness and acidity on the palate, this has lots of length and will age very well. Bravo!
