Te Whare Ra ‘Single Vineyard 5182’ ‘Toru’ Marlborough 2018

Blended White from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Dec-2018
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is firm and taut but elegantly presented with a core of exotic lime and citrus fruit that speaks of Riesling at present, along with subtle notes of florals and spice with stonefruit elements. This has a positive and deep core and unfolds fresh nuances of minerals. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has very good depth and intensity of finely concentrated flavours of exotic citrus fruit and florals, unfolding rose-petal and Turkish Delight suggestions of Gewurztraminer, harmoniously melded with stonefruits and honeysuckle. The palate is complete and balanced with soft acidity and a smooth-flowing line, carrying to a light, nuanced, lingering finish. This is a deep and intensely flavoured, finely concentrated medium-dry aromatic white blend with harmonious spice, floral, stonefruit and honeysuckle flavours on a smooth-flowing palate. Match with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 3 years. ‘Toru’ means ‘three’ in Maori. Hand-picked and hand-sorted fruit from the TWR ‘Home’ Block, given skin contact and co-fermented as field blend of 75% Gewurztraminer, 16% Riesling and 9% Pinot Gris, to 13.3% alc. and 7 g/L RS. 951 cases made. Certified BioGro organic. 18.5+/20 Dec 2018 RRP $28.00
