TOSQ Central Otago 2016 Rosé, 2014 Pinot Gris and 2012 Pinot Noir

04-May-2017
TOSQ is the brand of the Thompson family who own 15 ha of land in the Pisa region of Central Otago. The first letter of the first names of the family members make up the brand name: ‘T’ for father Carl, who is known as Thomo, ‘O’ for son Oscar, ‘S’ for mother Sue and ‘Q’ for son Quinn. The vines were established in 2001, and following a period of contracting their fruit out, they developed their own label with their first vintage in 2009. Pinot Noir is grown on the 3 ha ‘Terrace’ vineyard, certified BioGro organic in March 2016, and Pinot Gris plus a little Flora on the 1 ha ‘Roadside’ vineyard, which is in conversion to organic certification. Sue tends to the viticulture, and also employs biodynamic practices. The TOSQ wines are made at the Maude facility by Sarah-Kate and Dan Dineen and their team. Here, I review the 2016 Rosé, 2014 Pinot Gris and 2012 Pinot Noir. www.tosq.co.nz
