History

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

Regional Information

The grapes were sourced from both our Whenua Awa vineyard and the vines that surround our Awatere Valley winery. The 2018 growing season began with near-perfect flowering conditions in December. January brought some of the warmest average temperatures on record, followed by a very wet February. Vigilance in the vineyard including rigorous canopy management and fruit thinning was done to ensure ripe fruit for harvest. The early warm weather brought harvest forward around two weeks earlier than average.

Vinification Details

Grapes are handpicked, gently destemmed and lightly crushed. Batch fermented in small open-top fermenters, the must undergos a cold soak before being warmed and either selected yeasts are added or natural yeast found on grapes is used. After fermentation, the wine matures on skins and then put in a combination of old and new French barriques. These barrels are kept cool cellar over the winter months, before being warmed in spring, allowing the wine to undergo a secondary malolactic fermentation.
