    Tohu (pronounced tor-who) are Aotearoa’s first Maori owned wine company. This is their fancy looking and extremely fancy tasting Whenua range – Ngā hua a te whenua, our gift from the land.

    These are their single vineyard wines and they put their best foot forward on anything labelled under the Whenua series (individual barrel assessment in the winery to make sure only the best fruit makes it). Using fruit from the Upper Moutere region in Nelson, and specifically the Kuiti block in their Matua vineyard, this is their single vineyard Albariño.

    Albariño (alba-reen-yo) is the variety over the summer months especially this is one of our favourite styles to keep in the fridge at all times. This coastal white is dry in style with juicy stone fruit and citrus flavours, it’s aromatic and slightly spicy and it is so, so damn refreshing!

    Enjoy chilled from the fridge and if you’re pairing with a feed it’s got to be fresh kai moana!
