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 fresh steamed mussels with garlic and lemon zest, served with a side of a citrus dressed, fresh green salad with feta and olive.
The grapes for Two Tails are grown in Marlborough’s Southern Valley clay gravel soils. The vineyards are on north facing slopes with older river stones under clay gravels washed down from the southern valleys. The vineyards produce grapes with elegant aromas and dense flavours including white stone fruits, ripe citrus and gooseberry. Partial handpicking adds elegant mineral characters to the wine.
The grapes from each vineyard are managed separately in the winery. They are gently rotated in the press 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. Two Tails is made with top quality free-run juice.
