Region/Producer

Tohu produces award-winning New Zealand wine crafted from grapes grown in our breathtakingly beautiful, Awatere Valley vineyard. When Tohu launched in 1998 they were the world’s first Māori-owned wine company.  Since then they have grown a reputation for producing premium wine in a range of varieties.  Winning awards for their Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Méthode Traditionnelle.

Grapes for this wine are sourced from blocks located in the upper, mid, and lower areas of the Awatere Valley. The Awatere Valley is cooler, drier and windier overall than other sub-regions of Marlborough. Therefore has a longer and cooler growing season. These climatic factors combined with vineyards located on young, fertile river terraces result in distinctive wines with a mineral drive and fruit-forward flavours.

Select blocks from the Awatere Valley are harvested by machine. At the winery the grapes are pressed into stainless steel tanks for cold settling, and then racked and inoculated with select yeasts. Fermentation is carried out at cool temperatures, each batch fermented for around 21 days After fermentation the wines are left on lees for a short period before being racked again into stainless steel tanks for maturation. Once blended the resulting wine is stabilised and filtered without the need for fining.
