VITICULTURE
The grapes for Two Tails Pinot Gris are grown in Marlborough's Waihopai Valley. The vineyards are on older river stone terraces under alluvial loams. The vines produce grapes with elegant spicy and floral aromas with dense flavours of apricot, white peach and nectarine.

WINEMAKING
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.
