2018 Toru SV 5182

$28.00

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.

Tasting Notes

This 2018 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.

Reviews

Raymond Chan – 5 stars
This is a deep and intensely flavoured, finely concentrated medium-dry aromatic white blend with harmonious spice, floral, stonefruit and honeysuckle flavours on a smooth-flowing palate. Match with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine.

Sam Kim – 5 stars
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.
