SV PINOT GRIS TE WHARE RA, aromatic organic white wine, texture created by lees stirring in oak for 15% of the wine which was slightly skin macerated and fermented in oak.  They love Pinot Gris at Te Whare Ra and invest extra time and energy in the vineyards for this precocious white grape variety.  There is a lot going on in this wine on nose and palate, white flowers, pear, a slight bitterness on the palate is balanced by the rich texture and 4 grams residual sugar.  A delicious and friendly Pinot Gris, excellent for the classic foods which go so well with this grape, cheeses, squash and pumpkin, pine nuts, shellfish, all superb with this excellent value NZ wine.

Te Whare Ra (TWR), pronounced Te Faré Rha (House of the Sun), is the oldest little winery & vineyard in Marlborough, being first established in 1979 in the sub-region of Renwick. Since 2003 it has been owned and operated by two vignerons – Anna & Jason Flowerday. She’s an Aussie from South Australia and he’s a Kiwi from Marlborough. Both have wine in their veins literally & metaphorically, and after years of working for other people, they decided to make the leap to doing their own thing.

Anna and Jason firmly believe that biodiversity is the key to maintaining a good vineyard. They plant between the vines and plough alternate rows. To combat pests, they use natural methods such as buckwheat, and fertilize the vineyard using their own home-made composts and manure. In the cellar they practice a hands-off approach as they seek to express the nature of their individual vineyards and sites.

The TWR wines are truly hand-made. Everything is hand-picked, hand-sorted and the attention to detail is meticulous. Anna and Jason are dedicated to making delicious authentic wines that showcase the very best of Marlborough not the mass-produced version. “Wines made with cowsh#t not bullsh#t” is their winning maxim.
