Tohu Unoaked Chardonnay

Tohu Wines is the world’s first Māori-owned wine company, which created ranges of award-winning, premium quality New Zealand wines that encapsulate their terroir and tūrangawaewae, their sense of place. Each range has been crafted with aroha (love) and is a gift from our land.
Untouched by oak, the grape of this richly textured Marlborough Chardonnay were sourced solely from the Rothay vineyard located in the Marlborough’s Rapaura sub-region of the Wairau Valley – renowned for warm daytime temperatures and stony free-draining soils.
