TWR Toru 2022


Bewertung TWR Toru 2022Cameron Douglas MS: 95/100. Made with Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris this is a fantastic expression with seductive aromas of white fleshed fruits and aromatic spices, a sliky mouthfeel and fruit flavours that caress the palate. Acidity highlights the lime and lemon qualities of the Riesling and a soft silky texure mid-palate is accentuated by the a whisper of warming alcohol. Plush, fresh and delicious. Best drinking from 2023 through 2027.


review TWR Toru 2022James Suckling ( 93/100. Aromas of lychee, musk melon and tropical punch followed by potpourri, gingerbread and a hint of bergamot oil. Medium-bodied and moderate acidity. Lingering exotic spices gives more complexity at the end. Aromatic and fragrant yet beautifully harmonious. A blend of gewurztraminer, riesling and pinot gris. Drink or hold.


review TWR Toru 2022Wine Orbit (Sam Kim): 93/100. Gorgeously fruited and enticing with nectarine, rockmelon, lychee and lemon/lime nuances, it’s juicy and beautifully rounded in the mouth delivering terrific fruit weight and silky flow. Well framed by refreshing acidity, offering excellent drinking. A blend of Gewurztraminer, Riesling & Pinot Gris. At its best: now to 2028.


Tasting Note

This 2022 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.

Vintage 2022: Over the spring of 2021 we experienced great conditions over flowering which led to moderate crops and a nice, even set which always bodes well for very balanced, harmonious wines. We had no issues with frost and the summer that followed was generally dry and very even with no big heat spikes. We did experience some rain towards the end of February which gave the vines a nice boost to see them through till the beginning of harvest. We have described it as “the Goldilocks vintage” in that it was quite similar to the 2020 season = not too hot, not too cold, just right! The very even growing season meant that our harvest began on track with our long-term averages in mid - March and was completed by the first week in April. The resultant wines are very impressive with great depth of flavour and fleshiness whilst still exhibiting lovely purity of fruit, bright aromatics, and ripe, juicy acidity. This 2022 release of our “world famous” Toru field blend is delicious to drink now, and will also benefit from careful cellaring for 3 to 5 years.

Winemaking: The Toru is a field blend. This means, that all three grape varieties are harvested at the same time and fermeted together. All fruit for this wine was hand-picked and then hand-sorted. All parcels were destemmed, lightly crushed and then pressed, some parcels had lengthier skin-contact time. The wine was all co-fermented. Co-fermentation is an integral part of making Toru, as it makes the three component varieties much more integrated with each other. This wine has not been fined and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians and anyone else who loves authentic, hand-made wines.
