Winemaker's Notes:

#92 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Tohu means mark, sign or signature. Being the world's first Maori owned wine company, Tohu is making its mark on the world stage, producing outstanding New Zealand wine.

Central to Maori way of life is nurturing and respecting the land. When the land is looked after it rewards us with excellent quality produce. "Our gift from the land – Nga Hua a te whenua" is our stunning vineyards in the Waihopai and Awatere Valley, Marlborough. From these vineyards we source our grapes, producing world class, award winning wines.

Bright, deep ruby and cherry appearance. Aromas of savory ripe plum, cherry, smoky oak and dark spices.

My Notes:

About Tohu:

For centuries Maori, the indigenous people of New Zealand, worked on, lived around and loved the rugged yet fertile lands of their ancestors. There was awareness that the earth was the giver of all life. From the soil came food and that same food was cooked beneath the earth. It was accepted that the people who were born onto that land inherited the right to produce from it and to protect it for the benefit of all. Tohu Wines is the first indigenous branded wine to be produced for the export market. The superb quality blend, taken from the foremost wine growing regions in New Zealand, Marlborough and Gisborne, conveys the care and consideration, experience and understanding that is inherent in all the finest produce gifted from the land. Tohu Wines is one of New Zealand's finest achievements created from a mutual vision of harmony and respect of our people and our place.
