Has the aromatic spice and weight of Gewurztraminer, the structure and length of Riesling, and the great texture of Pinot Gris in a perfectly balanced 75%/16%/9% blend. It is a delicious, co-fermented field blend from a single vineyard. This 2021 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.

A striking bouquet with layers of spice, new white fleshed fruits, quite exotic and very new. Flavours of white fleshed fruits and apple, a core of citrus with lime and lemon, white peach and peppery white spices. Silk touches the palate first then a core of fruit and back bone of acidity take over. There’s a supple fine chalky texture which adds intrigue and texture. Lovely long finish. A wine for all occasions, people and food. Be quick! Best drinking from 2022 through 2028+.

A co-fermented field blend of Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris. Floral, white rose, lime and tree fruit flavours supported by gentle acidity. An appealing wine that shows remarkable compatibility with three very different varieties without a single variety dominating. Nice purity and an ethereal texture. 25 JAN 2022 Drink 2022–2026
