Winery notes (2016 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."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, October 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"​Even, pale straw colour with suggestions of blush and green. The nose is softly presented with broad and voluminous aromas, showing delicate rose-petal and white florals, subtle lime notes with an underlying steeliness at the core. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is gently concentrated with flavours of rose petals entwined with lime fruit and white florals. This is soft and finely textured, the phenolics balancing the exotic aromatic fruit. The mouthfeel is balanced with integrated acidity, but the wine has a positive line and drive, revealing lifted, refreshing lime and floral nuances which carry to a detailed finish of exotic rose-petal and stonefruit notes. This is an off-dry aromatic blend with gently concentrated rose-petal flavours balanced by a refreshing line of white floral and lime, on a very fine-featured palate. Match with Asian cuisine over the next 4+ years. A field blend of 80% Gewurztraminer and 10% each of Pinot Gris and Riesling from the ‘Home’ block, the fruit hand-picked and sorted, the wine given skin contact and co-fermented to 13.5% alc. and 7 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. Certified BioGro organic. 1,190 cases made."
94/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2016 Vintage)
"Exotic, complex and inviting bouquet of fresh fruits, exotic fruits, spice, honeysuckle and harmony. On the palate – dry with plenty of acidity and flavours that show off lemon and pear, spiced apple and white pepper. Lengthy and totally enjoyable finish, great balance and length. Drink now and through 2020"
92/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"​An instantly likable wine, the fragrant bouquet shows ripe stone fruit, mango, citrus and floral characters with hints of lychee and spice. The palate is succulent and rounded, and displays pristine fruit flavours and smooth texture, wonderfully enhanced by whispering sweetness and refreshing acidity. The wine is immediate and flavoursome, and finishes long and satisfying. A blend of gewurztraminer, riesling and pinot gris from their home vineyard in Renwick. At its best: now to 2020. Certified organic."
91/100 ​Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, February 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​Marlborough gewürztraminer, riesling and pinot gris as a co-fermented blend. Aroma, texture, spice and a sizzle of citrussy/stonefruit-like flavour through the finish. It’s a easy to knock over a few glasses and yet it has a bit of class too. A mouthfilling white."
