Kia ora, welcome to Tohu. Tohu is the result of matching perfectly two New Zealand's traditions in an only brand? Tohu is the world's first Māori-owned wine company. Tohu produces award-winning New Zealand wine crafted from grapes grown in our breathtakingly beautiful, Awatere Valley vineyard.

Tasting Notes
Black fruit and dark plum aromas seamlessly blend with subtle spicy notes in this rich and concentrated Hawkes Bay Merlot. On the palate flavours of blackberry, cassis and subtle hints of dark cocoa are balanced with smooth, silky tannins that lead to a dry and richly textured finish.

Vinification Details
Hand-harvested fruit was picked into small bins before being transported to the winery, where the grapes were lightly crushed and destemmed into open-top stainless steel fermenters. After a short cold soak period the must was warmed and inoculated with select yeast cultures. After inoculation the juice underwent a rapid fermentation with temperatures peaking at 30 to 33°C. Post-fermentation the resulting wine underwent a short maceration on skins before being pressed to old French old barriques and undergoing a secondary malo-lactic fermentation. Once this was complete the wine was allowed to age for 12 months before being gently fined and prepared for bottling in late March 2016.
