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.
Pretty much spot on in terms of what regular drinkers expect from a Marlborough Sauvignon. Aromas of the vegetable crisper – you know, capsicum, snow peas and the like – and light tropical fruits such as guava and passionfruit. Crisp and tangy in the mouth with a gentle sweetness, almost a gin and tonic character, passionfruit and citrus, balanced acidity and a touch of flint to close. Flirts pretty hard with the regional pungent vegetal spectrum, but has a good amount of fruit and a purity of flavour to pull it off. Refreshing. Good to guzzle.

Two Tails Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on rim. The nose is very fresh and tightly bound with intense aromas of gooseberry fruit entwined with mouthwatering minerally notes, revealing passionfruit and nettle-like nuances with aeration. Dry to taste, medium-bodied and elegant in proportion, precise fruit flavours of white stonefruits, gooseberries and minerals follow a very fine-textured palate line. The fruit freshness is enhanced by excellent acid cut which provides poise, balance and linear drive. The wine carries to a crisp, lingering, very dry finish with mineral and gooseberry notes. This is a tightly bound, dry, crisp Sauvignon Blanc with thirst-quenching minerally flavours. Serve as an aperitif and with shellfish over the next 2+ years.

Two Tails Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014 It's elegantly fragrant on the nose displaying white peach, grapefruit, feijoa and subtle herbaceous aromas, leading to a juicy palate that's finely textured and beautifully structured by bright acidity. It's long, mouth-watering and very tasty. At its best: now to 2017. Rating 4½ Stars; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
