The grapes for Two Tails Pinot Gris are grown in Marlborough’s Waihopai Valley. The vineyards are on north facing slopes with older river stones under alluvial loams. The vine produces grapes with elegant aromas and dense flavours including apricot, white peach and nectarine.
The grapes are gently rotated in the press to release “free-run” juice. Their juices are fermented in stainless steel tanks to capture their individual site and fruit expressions. Blending the fermentation batches, builds a wine that reflects the purity of Pinot Gris and the mineral features of the land in a consistent mouth filling style.
