2022 SV Toru
TORU – (which means “three” in Māori) 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 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.
This 2022 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.

An initial hint of sweetness is perfectly balanced with refreshing acidity that drives a lengthy finish. Lime, Green apple, white flowers and ginger are some of the more evident flavours. A single vineyard field blend of Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris combining to give a vibrant and mouthwatering wine. Distinctively different. Drink 2022 – 2026

Gorgeously fruited and enticing with nectarine, rockmelon, lychee and lemon/lime nuances, it’s juicy and beautifully rounded in the mouth delivering terrific fruit weight and silky flow. Well framed by refreshing acidity, offering excellent drinking. A blend of Gewurztraminer, Riesling & Pinot Gris. Certified organic. At its best: now to 2028
