    Toru (which means “three” in Maori) is an aromatic blend we first created over 12 years ago and was the first of its 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.

    Region

    The Marlborough wine region at the top of New Zealand's South Island is considered the ‘engine room’ of the NZ wine industry with some 20,000 hectares of vines representing almost two-thirds of the country's plantings. It’s a region built on the incredible success of Sauvignon Blanc from the cheap and cheerful to more profound single-vineyard and oak aged examples but other varieties such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and the aromatic Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer also so well. The main Wairau Valley is heavily planted and in recent years sub-regional nuance as been explored in the Southern Valleys of Omaka, Fairhall, Brancott, Ben Morvan and Waihopai, the Awatere Valley to the south and even further south towards Kekerengu where there are some interesting limestone deposits. Marlborough is one of the great ‘New World’ success stories and it is easy to see why - delicious, distinctive wines that offer a sense of place are the norm.

    This certainly leads with the fragrance and soft, pillowy, tropical fruit of gewurztraminer. The palate has such smooth, fleshy-fruit presence, really stunning lightness and playful, fresh flavors. A blend of 75% gewurztraminer, 16% pinot gris and 9% riesling.
