WHITE | BUTTER, BABY: Not for the faint of heart, this bottle here is the definition of “full noise”.
WHAT WE TASTE: Creamy vanilla & plenty of flint
PERFECT PAIRING: Try pairing this one up with roast chicken, charred vegetables or even a sinfully delicious mac and cheese.
TEMP CHECK: No need to be drunk ice cold, pop this guy out of the fridge 10ish minutes before serving.
ABOUT TOHU: Maori-owned and operated, this winery is taking sustainability to a whole other level. They are passionate about preserving their heritage which blends in beautifully with their philosophies around environmental conservation. Every member of this winery owns a small part of it, giving way to more than 4,000 owner families! What can we say, it takes a village to raise a beautiful wine baby!
OUR FAVE THING ABOUT THIS WINE: Unlike any Chardonnay that any of us have ever tasted. This wine feels like it was made with the very clear intention to “wow” anyone who crosses its path. It speaks volumes about the ecosystem of this unconventional winery and its deep-rooted passion for “Pono” - integrity.
THE TECHNICAL STUFF: Place: Awatere Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand Grape: Chardonnay Style: Big and Bold
