Tohu are you? Tohu? Tohu?

Tohu 2007 Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough) – A textbook historical summary Marlborough sauvignon, combining the brash green of the old and the sweeter tropicality of the new. Not particularly exciting, to be sure, but highly representative. (2/09)

Tohu are you? Hu, hu? Hu, hu?

Tohu 2004 Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough) – By-the-numbers Marlborough sauvignon. Bell pepper? Check. Tart, citrusy acidity? Check. An aggressive sort of sizzle to the palate? Check. There’s not much else to this wine, but I suspect no one cares at this price point. (12/08)

Mugwi shot

[wines]Tohu 2006 Sauvignon Blanc “Mugwi” (Marlborough) – Concentrated gooseberry with makrut lime rind and salt. A bit puckery. This has a lot more character than Tohu’s regular sauvignon, but I don’t know if it’s a more appealing beverage or not. I’m just unsure. (6/08)
