2019 TWR (Te Whare Ra) "Toru" White Blend Marlborough

SKU #1463349 90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Although its makers say many people thought it was bad idea when they first produced it in 2006, the detractors have been proven wrong: after Sauvignon Blanc, this is TWR's second-biggest-selling white internationally, and it's easy to see why. This co-fermentation is attractive and aromatic. The blend varies in its proportions but it is generally Gewürztraminer-dominated, giving a floral nose and viscosity to the palate. The Gris brings pear fruit and additional roundness, while the Riesling pulls the wine together like a shoelace. Well-handled phenolics and pleasing sinew on the medium-length finish.

K&L Notes

Te Whare Ra (TWR) was founded and is still owned by winemakers Anna and Jason Flowerday. The 11 hectare vineyard is one of the oldest in Marlborough and is certified organic. Winery tasting notes: "This 2019 Toru has an 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."
