Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"TORU – which means “three” in Maori is an aromatic blend we have created and is made from three varieties – Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris. We are passionate about these classic Alsatian varieties and we spent a great deal of time coming up with the right proportions in the blend. We were aiming for a wine that displayed the essence of all three varieties whilst creating a distinctive and interesting wine in its own right. It has the aromatic spice and weight of Gewürztraminer, the structure and length of Riesling, and the great texture of Pinot Gris."


92/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, August 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"This is a co-ferment of gewurztraminer, riesling, pinot gris. A field blend, proper. A very small portion is raised in barrel, but it all gets some good lees time. An unusual blend that many in the Marlborough region were naysaying about, but has found a small cult following for Te Whare Ra.

Highly perfumed wine showing rose water, jasmine, fresh pear and sweet spice. The palate has a slipperiness, gentle pear sweetness, cool lift of acidity and an attractive, pulpy and peppery but fresh finish. Lots going on, supple and delicious to drink. A ripper. "


4 Stars & 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, July 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"​Brilliant straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, paler on the rim. The nose is taut and slender with finely concentrated aromas of exotic florals harmoniously entwined with subtle citrus and stonefruit elements, along with a suggestion of minerals. This builds in intensity with aeration. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a well-proportioned core with an amalgam of subtle rose-petal and exotic floral flavours integrated with citrus and stonefruit elements. The fruit has richness and flows positively along a fine phenolic line with balanced acidity, leading to a long and sustained finish of florals, honey and spice nuances. This is a well-proportioned and finely concentrated medium-dry aromatic blend with harmony, gentle richness and a fine-textured line. Serve with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 3+ years. First made 12 years ago. Hand-picked fruit, a field blend of 66% Gewurztraminer, 24% Riesling and 10% Pinot Gris from the ‘TWR Home Block’, parcels given skin contact and co-fermented to 13.3% alc. and 8.0 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. Certified BioGro organic. 850 cases made."
