We recommend fresh seafood. Oysters and salmon are a natural accompaniment for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and this wine is no exception. Also exciting and compelling are chilli prawns tossed in the wok & served with a side of a citrus dressed, fresh green salad with feta and olive.
The grapes for Two Tails are grown on three vineyards with two and three cane vines in the Southern Vales of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. The vineyards share the north facing aspects with older river stones under clay gravels washed down from the southern valleys. The vineyards produce grapes with dense flavours including white stone fruits, ripe citrus and gooseberry. Partial handpicking allows the grapes to share the vineyards more elegant mineral characters to the wine.
The grapes from each vineyard are managed separately in the winery. They are gently rotated in the press, not squeezed, to release “free-run” juice. Their juices are fermented in stainless steel tanks with neutral yeasts to capture their individual site and fruit expressions. Selective blending of the fermented wines allows for the finished wine to express its southern valleys origin and its varietal characters in a consistent mouth filling style. Partial barrel maturation in mature French oak has added complexity to the mid palate.
