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.

Critical Acclaim

"Lithe, medium-weight, generous and appealing for the coffee nuances that swirl through the plum and currant fruit, remaining vivid and expressive through the long finish. Drink now through 2015."
91 Points

"A Maori-owned company, Tohu has been crafting solid wines for close to a decade. The 2007 Pinot Noir features standard cherry and cola notes, accented by some darker, coffee-like aromas and flavors. The tannins are negligible, with crisp acids providing the necessary punch on the finish. Drink now. "
