96 points and only £14.95

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!

Tohu Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 

Tohu Sauvignon Blanc New World award!

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.

A visit from Kevin Judd, Marlborough pioneer

Clos & Cru were thrilled to host wine making legend Kevin Judd this week and receive a tutored tasting through the full range from his solo venture Greywacke. Judd came to prominence as the wine maker at Cloudy Bay, which he set up with David Honen and where he spent 25 vintages defining what the world has come to know as Kiwi sauvignon blanc. The name ‘Greywacke’ was adopted by Kevin for his first Marlborough vineyard located in Rapaura in recognition of the high prevalence of rounded greywacke river stones in the soils.
