At Two Tails we have just released our Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016, here are the latest reviews.
It is fabulously ripe and fragrant on the nose showing yellow peach, baked pear, floral and subtle spice characters, leading to a succulent palate that is rounded and fleshy. The wine offers excellent fruit intensity and vibrancy, brilliantly supported by silky texture and refreshing acidity. The wine is immediate and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2019.

Bright, light golden-yellow colour, paler on the rim. The nose is soft and full with good depth of bright and ripe yellow stonefruits along with subtle notes of tropical fruits and hints of spice, unfolding honeysuckle notes and suggestions of marmalade. The aromatics grow in presence and depth with aeration. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has rich, bright and up-front fruit flavours of yellow stonefruits, exotic florals, honeysuckle and a little spice and marmalade. The mouthfeel is refreshing with good lacy acidity, and the wine flows with good energy along a positive, fine-textured line. The flavours carry to a rich, slightly honied finish. This is an off-dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral and honied flavours on a soft-textured, but fresh palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3+ years.

Pinot Gris has recently become a much-loved varietal in the Antipodes. It is now the third most popular white variety in New Zealand, with those in the know in Australia, predicting that it’s likely to surpass Sauvignon Blanc in popularity. Most restaurants have a dedicated Pinot Gris selection on their wine lists. With the continued rise of the Asian style dining experience down under, (a natural food pairing for Pinot Gris), it looks like it’s set to keep its place as a rising star!
If you haven’t embraced this popular variety as yet, here are three reasons we think you will love Two Tails Marlborough Pinot Gris.
- If you love seafood, you’ll love Two Tails Pinot Gris it’s well suited with flash fried and succulent prawns or calamari.
- It’s not classified as a dessert wine, but you can certainly serve it with some desserts. We have enjoyed it with a stone-fruit fruit salad and a cherry clafoutis. And if you’re a fan of the cheeseboard try it with Halloumi and Gouda.
- As an easy drinking, food friendly, dry white wine with a generous and silky palate it’s definitely a crowd pleaser that is perfect for entertaining.
