As we all know, scores are not the be all and end all with wine, but when Decanter awards 96 points in a panel tasting to a bottle of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and it costs just £14.95 all in, we stand up and take notice!
Tohu’s 2016 Single Vineyard Marlborough Sauvignon has been so decorated with awards that their mantlepiece must have been too full for Christmas cards. New World Wine Awards Gold, Marlborough Wine Show Gold, Decanter World Wine Awards Silver, NZ International Wine Show Gold… And that’s all I can manage in one breath!
Over 80 Sauvignon Blancs were blind tasted next to this one, with just two others being put into the ‘outstanding’ category, and they are both exceptionally and justifiably proud of their ‘most awarded wine’ yet.
It’s great to see the first ever Maori owned winery creating something truly outstanding, great value and that honours the amazing terroir of Marlborough. There should be a case of this on everyone’s rack.
