TWR Single Vineyard 5182 'Toru' 2016
Toru is a single-site wine made from Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer. 5182 is the vineyard number given by BioGro New Zealand following the organic certification of the original vineyard. Toru – which means “three” in Maori is an aromatic blend Anna and Jason have created and from three varieties. They're passionate about these classic Alsatian varieties and spent a great deal of time coming up with the right proportions in the blend. They aim for a wine that displays the essence of all three varieties while 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. The TWR Toru is certified organic.
|Varietal(s)||Riesling Pinot Gris/Grigio Gewürztraminer|
The Wine Front – 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.
