Two Rivers’ philosophy combines the intense fruit flavours of the famous Marlborough region with elegance, purity and a sense of place. The vineyards are located on the high density clay soils planted in Brookby Hill Vineyard in the Southern Valleys sub region of Marlborough. This delicious Riesling has aromas of honeydew melon and apricot kernel, mixed with an underlying touch of mandarin peel and lanolin. The palate is full of character, releasing juicy mandarin fruit with bright citrus and spicy undertones. A concentrated and vibrant expression of Riesling that is ideal as an elegant aperitif or an excellent match for seafood or spicy Asian cuisine.

Riesling

A variety with plenty of nominations for the title of ‘greatest white grape variety in the world‘, Riesling has however, despite the wine trade‘s love affair with this grape, failed to capture the affection of the wine-drinking public outside its homeland in the same way as Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. Its inimitable, unique flavour is hard to describe and takes time to appreciate, however, few varieties have its capacity to reflect the land in which they‘re grown along with its own distinctive character, visible decades after bottling. Full of limey, green-apple fruit in its heartland of Germany and lean citrus notes in the Clare Valley in Australia, with the unmistakeable ‘kerosene‘ note in warmer climates, it is capable of greatness whether bone-dry, zestily off-dry or lusciously sweet.
