We recommend fresh seafood. Oysters are a natural accompaniment for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and this wine is no exception. Also exciting is a tomato based salsa with avocado and a touch of chilli, as is a, citrus dressed, fresh green salad with crumbled goat cheese and crispy smoked bacon.
The grapes for Two Tails are grown on two vineyards with two and three cane vines in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. One vineyard is in Marlborough’s centre valley on older river gravels overlaid with clay gravels from the southern valleys. Its north facing slope produces grapes with ripe tropical flavours. The other vineyard, further to the west on an old river terrace, has stony river gravels producing grapes with citrus and gooseberry attributes.
The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains to capture their individual fruit expressions. A selected blend of the fermented wines resulted in a style consistent for Two Tails. The wine exhibits the vibrant, characteristic qualities of Marlborough Sauvignon blanc in an expressive style.
