Te Whare Ra 'Toru' Riesling, Gris, Gewurztraminer 2022

Toru, meaning three in Māori, is a field blend of 52% Gewürztraminer 25% Riesling and 23% Pinot Gris first released in 2006. The wine is an expression of the essence of all three varieties, utilising co-fermentation as a key winemaking tool. It has the aromatic spice and fleshiness of Gewürztraminer, the line and length of Riesling, and the great texture of Pinot Gris.

The nose intrigues 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 fleshiness with lovely creamy texture, plus a mineral edge which gives it great length of flavour and interest.
