About The Wine

Jason and Anna Flowerday farm their small Marlborough vineyard in accordance with the principals of organics and biodynamics. With a name like 'Flowerday', it's not like they ever really had a choice.

Their little part of Marlborough is a Garden of Eden where wild flowers grow and vines thrive.

Toru (Maori for 'Three') is a blend of Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris.

This is a super-aromatic, super-versatile white wine that can go with anything from a light salad to a piece of fresh Ocean Trout.

Cool and crisp yet full of flavour, this is top value from this much-loved boutique Marlborough producer.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Toru (which means “three” in Maori) is an aromatic blend we first created 12 yrs ago and was the first of its kind in New Zealand. This certified-organic, biodynamic wine a delicious, co-fermented “field blend” of three varieties: Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris.

We are passionate about these classic Alsatian varieties and we spent a great deal of time coming up with the right proportions in the blend. We were aiming for a wine that displayed the essence of all three varieties, whilst creating a distinctive and interesting wine in its own right. It has the aromatic spice and weight of Gewürztraminer, the structure and length of Riesling, and the great texture of Pinot Gris. This rendition is 66% Gewürztraminer, 24% Riesling and 10% Pinot Gris.

All fruit for this wine was hand-picked and then hand-sorted. All parcels were destemmed, crushed and then pressed, some parcels had lengthier skin-contact time. The wine was all co-fermented. All parcels spent considerable time on lees after ferment for added texture & complexity. Cofermentation is a key part of making Toru as it makes the three varieties much more integrated with each other. This wine has not been fined and is suitable for vegetarians, vegans and anyone who loves great, honest wine with a sense of personality and place.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"The 2017 TWR Toru is intensely perfumed, this wine 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 a lovely creamy texture and a mineral edge which gives it great length of flavour." - Anna Flowerday, TWR

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
