Two Tails Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014
The name Two Tails has a personal origin. The native birds, called Fantails, captivated us one warm and sunny afternoon with their aerobic gorging of a mayfly hatch at a local stream.
I’ll often comment on Marlborough Pinot Noir being a pretty good drink, and often better than Central Otago, not least in the value stakes. I liked this wine last vintage, and I like it again this one. It’s not rocket science, nor rocket fuel, it’s just a lovely easy going drink. Raspberry, subtle herbal and floral perfume, light dusting of sweet brown spices. Light bodied, fresh red fruit flavour, light tannin and a decent finish. Regional, varietal and affordable. Bonus point for charm. Rating: 90 Points; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $19; Drink: 2015-2018; Gary Walsh - The Winefront.
Youthful, friendly and instantly appealing, this elegant pinot shows cherry, plum and floral aromas with subtle nutty complexity on the nose. The palate is ripe and silky, and offers generous fruit intensity, finishing long and smooth. Lovely balance and integration. At its best: now to 2018. 4 Stars. Sam Kim. Wine Orbit.
