Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"TORU – (which means “three” in Maori) is an aromatic blend we first created over 12 years ago and was the first of it’s kind in New Zealand. It is a delicious, co-fermented “field blend” of three varieties – Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris. We are passionate about these classic Alsacian 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.

This 2019 Toru has an intriguing nose with notes of mango, fresh citrus, white florals and exotic spices. These lead into a multi-layered palate with flavours of mango, citrus, red apple and lychee with a lingering spiciness. The palate has excellent fruit concentration and weight with lovely creamy texture, plus a mineral edge which gives it great length of flavour."

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2018 Vintage)
"This is fabulously drinkable; it is filled with delectable stone fruit and citrus flavours with floral and spice nuances. The palate is succulent and fleshy, delivering splendid fruit intensity and vibrancy, backed by whispering sweetness and lively acidity. Flavoursome, comforting and irresistibly appealing. A blend of gewurztraminer, riesling and pinot gris. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2022."


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."

The staff are very knowledgeable and their recommendations/reviews are spot on. I do not bother buying wine from anywhere else and if i'm in a rush - simply order it online. 10/10

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
