Our Pinot Noir Clutha was entered into the New World Wine Awards for the first time this year and has been rewarded with a Top 50 placing.
Toi Toi Wine’s own winemaker and viticulturist, Tim Adams, said that while dealing with COVID-19 restrictions and the challenging grape growing conditions of Central Otago, he was very happy with the end result and the win.
“When it came up I kind of let the wine make itself. It’s wild fermented and we did gentle plunging, treating the fruit with a gentle hand. We wanted to enhance the fruit, not over extract the tannins. We took the softly, softly approach.”
“It shows what we are doing is right.”
The New World Wine Awards recognises top quality wines priced under $25.
