Wonderfully pure and not over the top with lovely ripe characters of guava, white currant, and elderflower coupled with passionfruit & tropical notes and hints of basil and lime. These follow through to the palate – which is fine and soft with loads of fleshy fruit balanced by a ripe, juicy acidity and lingering minerality. There is real fruit weight here and that is complimented by lovely texture from the time on lees and the barrel parcels – It is utterly delicious!


Tasting Notes

Te Whare Ra (TWR) is a small vineyard and winery located in the Marlborough sub-region of Renwick, owned by winemakers – Anna & Jason Flowerday. The 11 Ha vineyard which has predominantly loam over clay soils, is one of the oldest in Marlborough, originally planted in 1979. Yields are kept low, the vineyard is managed with a combination of organic and biodynamic practices and all the fruit is hand picked and hand-sorted.


Press Note:

Cameron Douglas – 95 Pts “Pungent, varietal, fruity, savoury and exotic with aromas of fresh and dried herbs, sweet green papaya, grapefruit, apple and wet river stone minerality. On the palate – equally exotic, fruity and pungent. Dry with abundant acidity contrasted by a core of fruit that mirrors the nose. Fleshy satin textures, herbs and peppery white spice.” Sam Kim – 94 Pts “Offering fabulous varietal purity and vibrancy, the wine shows green rockmelon, Gala apple, jalapeno and lime peel aromas on the nose with a hint of oatmeal complexity. It’s delightfully weighted and persistent with fine texture and bright acidity, making it immediately appealing. Deliciously stylish.”
