Another superb release from Two Rivers. Winemaker Dave Clouston is on top of his game at the moment and consistently produces some of the best sauvignon blanc to come out of Marlborough. This 2022 is a powerhouse of flavour that just explodes in the glass and then on the palate we just love the hint of oyster shell minerality that gives it a real edge. There is nothing shy or subtle but it is also very sophisticated with layers of complexity.


Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"This energetic sauvignon blanc has explosive aromatics of paw paw, Kaffir lime, capsicum, and stone fruit that mingle with subtle notes of coconut and dill. Dry and reminiscent of highball gin and tonic, persistent flavours of blackcurrant, banana passionfruit, cucumber, and green olive are revealed alongside bright, mouth-watering acidity. The distinctive palate has an elegant structure and a bright, pure finish.

Very good intensity of flavour and aromatics this year, due to great fertility in the vineyards and late summer rains. Grapes were harvested in the early morning from vineyards in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. Lightly pressed, the juice was fermented cool, predominately in stainless steel to maximise fruit purity and distinctive varietal character. A small portion was fermented in concrete egg tank and clay amphora to add a grainy texture to the palate. The wine was then aged on light yeast lees for three months to gain complexity and increase mouthfeel."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2022 (2022 Vintage)
"Pristine and fabulously aromatic, the wine shows passionfruit, kaffir lime, feijoa and subtle musky aromas, leading to a wonderfully flavoursome palate offering fine texture and bright acidity. Splendidly poised and refined with excellent fruit purity, enhanced by saline textural mouthfeel, finishing impressively long and satisfying. At its best: now to 2028."


Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, July 2022 (2022 Vintage)
"A very engaging bouquet from the the first sniff – with aromas of fresh lime leaf and white stone fruits, lemon pith and fresh sage. Vibrant, youthful, powerful and new. A texture-laden palate with a saline and high acid youthful energy. Flavours of citrus and white stone fruits, fresh green herbs and a fine stony mineral quality combine to present a delicious, fresh, textured and well made wine. Ideal with oysters or freshly steamed green-lipped mussels. Best drinking from late 2022 through 2027+."


Reviews for the 2021 vintage below…


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2021 Vintage)
"The classy, distinctive 2021 vintage was grown at four sites in the Awatere and Wairau valleys, and mostly tank-fermented; a small part of the blend was fermented in concrete, egg-shaped vessels and clay amphorae. Bright, light lemon/green, with a fragrant, complex bouquet, it is mouthfilling and vibrantly fruity, with penetrating melon, lime and green capsicum flavours, dry (3.2 grams/litre of residual sugar) and lingering. Full of youthful impact, it should be at its best mid-2022+."


95/100 NWWA (2021 Vintage)
"This consistently outstanding label is brilliantly styled by the award-winning winemaker David Clouston, who combines grapes from both Wairau and Awatere Valleys to make Sauvignon in perfect harmony. Ripe gooseberry, nectarine and lime cordial notes with an exuberant finish will brilliantly match velvety goat's cheese on crunchy crostini."


4 ½ Stars Yvonne Lorkin, July 2021 (2021 Vintage)
"Holy jalapeno Batman!! One thing’s for certain. The second someone pours a glass of this wine, you’ll be able to smell its crazy punchy pungency from across the room. Or possibly across the street. Who knows – soon you may be overrun by sauvignon blanc zombies clawing at your windows with an unstakeable desire to have what you’re having. With basil, sweet pea, capsicum and nettle-infused niceness on the nose, plus buckets of white peach and passionfruit saturating the palate, it’s delicious."


5 Stars & 94/100 Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, August 2021 (2021 Vintage)
"Bright, very pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full with intense aromas of gooseberries, capsicums interweave elderflower and pine needles, linger with a savoury thread. Medium-bodied, concentrated nuances of gooseberries, limes and capsicums fill the palate, unfolding pine needles, elderflower, along with white spices and savoury lees detail. The fruit is mouth-filling with intensity; savoury elements broaden the palate and provide balance. Rounded mouthfeel supports by mouth-watering acidity and a fine-gravelly texture; lifted white spice lingers to linearity. This is an intricate Sauvignon Blanc with classic flavours enhanced by elegant details and concentration. Match with green-lipped mussels and pork belly bao buns over the next 4-5 years."

  • Relatively new to wine and liquor, but I have found the experience of trying new wines and liquor enjoying with the help from the staff at Vino Fino. Very friendly and tolerant of my basic questions!

    Amazing customer service. Vino Fino arranged a gift wrapped, hand delivered, chilled bottle of champagne for the morning of my best friends wedding, as I was stuck in the UK with COVID. A beautiful gift. It was like nothing was too much trouble for them. I was even able to dictate a small message. Thank you for your excellent service!

  • Great range of wines.You will find some not so common grape varieties are available here. They appear to be competitively priced. Service was excellent. The shop is split over three levels. Not sure how you'd cope if you are mobility impaired.

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
