Dave Clouston's Two Rivers wines are on a roll at the moment. The 2018 Chardonnay is the much awaited follow up release to the highly regarded 2017 vintage that took out a trophy and four gold medals. We were so impressed that we even awarded it our Chardonnay of the year. This is just as impressive and we rate it highly for its sense of power, flavour depth and down-right deliciousness.

Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Clos des Pierres (place of stones). Predominately from 25 year old vines, the fruit for this wine was hand harvested, lightly whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented. Intermittent lees stirring was carried out and full malolactic fermentation occurred. The wine was then aged for 11 months in a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barrels, a new French oak cuve and a concrete egg tank. In pursuit of the highest quality, we have not filtered this wine. As a result a harmless residue may remain.

Bright lemon in colour, the bouquet offers aromas of orange blossom and stone fruit mingled with toasted cumin seeds and struck match. On the palate the wine is focused, opening up to layers of white peach, lemon curd and honeysuckle, over flavours of cinnamon stick and cloves. The artisan winemaking approach has resulted in an elegant and delicious wine, showing great vibrancy, purity of fruit and underlying old vine minerality."

95/100 & 5 Stars Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Wonderfully fruited and gorgeously complex, the wine shows nectarine, fig, lemon pith, vanilla and hazelnut characters with a lovely flinty overtone. It's concentrated and weighty on the palate, delivering excellent focus and depth, leading to an impressively long, expansive finish. At its best: now to 2025."

93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, June 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"White smoke, toasty, nutty, ripe, complex and quite intense. Aromas of baked stone-fruits and grapefruit, brazil-nut and baked custard, vanilla and crushed river stone. On the palate – equally complex and compelling with flavours that reflect the nose – especially the nut, spices and layers of oak then fruit. A dry wine with a youthful tension, citrus peel, stone fruit, medium+ acidity and fine tannin each adding a layer of complexity and charm. Best drinking from 2021 through 2025+."

5 Stars & 18.5/20, Candice Chow For Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, June 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Bright, medium straw-yellow, even throughout. The nose is welcoming, greets with smokey flint, extends with buttery aromas, freshly peeled citrus zest, alongside delicate spices, painting an appealing impression. Medium-bodied, freshly squeezed lemon juice and zest rushed in, along with nuances of lemon curd with a light scent of orange blossom, melded with subtle spices and buttery nuances. The mouthfeel is creamy and elegant, a thin layer of chalkiness coating on the palate; acid is soft and well-integrated, flows with a drop of orange bitter, smokey gunflint to a lingering sleek finish. This is an elegant and well-integrated Chardonnay with all the attractive features; well-balanced, soft acidity and creamy lemon-curd entwined with chalky mineral and charming flintiness and spices. Match with grilled calamari and barbeque whitefish over the next 3-5 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, wild-fermented to 13% alc. Aged in a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barrels, a new French cuve and a concrete egg tank for 11 months. Regular battonage, full MLF. Unfiltered." 

4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"From two sites, in the Wairau Valley and Southern Valleys, the 2018 vintage was fermented and matured for 11 months in French oak barrels, a new French oak cuve and a concrete egg tank. It has a slightly smoky bouquet, leading into a full-bodied wine with very good intensity of youthful, peachy, citrusy flavours, crisp and long. A vigorous young wine, it should be at its best 2021+."

    review rating 5  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

  • review rating 5  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
