Product Description

"A field blend of Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris. Cue standard issue Wine Front comment about complexity of blends, and weirdness of Australian obsession with mono-variety wines.

So aromatic: ginger spice, lychee, slight smokiness, maybe some pear and green apple. Slight savoury cheesy flavours, soft and waxy with gentle acidity, some carry from phenolics and a chicken fillet burger finish (hey, I wrote it, though maybe I was just a bit hungry). Such a lovely, complex wine."

REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Te Whare Ra Toru 2011
TORU – which means “three” in Maori is an aromatic blend we have created and is made from 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.
