Oz Clarke – 93 points – 2020 Vintage
Brilliant idea – take three pretty lively grape varieties and ferment them all together.  This is a lovely wine – scented, but only just so.  Refreshingly acid, but only just so.  I went back to it after 4 days open, and it had blossomed

TORU – (which means “three” in Te Reo Maori) is an aromatic blend. It is a delicious, co-fermented “field blend” of three varieties – Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris. Created around 10 years ago was the first of its kind and now certainly, developing cult like status.

intriguing nose 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 weight with lovely creamy texture, plus a mineral edge which gives it great length of flavour.

If you havent tried 'Toru' I urge you to!
