In a recent panel tasting by the prestigious Decanter magazine for New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, we are pleased to announce that our Tohu Single Vineyard Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016 rated ‘outstanding’. It scored an epic 96 points by all three judges! It also made the top three wines in two out the three judges choices and scored third overall 93 wines tasted.

Decanters panel of experts blind tasted, and then rated over 80 New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs. Only two other wines were rated as ‘outstanding’, which puts Tohu Single Vineyard Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016 in the top five of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs rated.

One of the judges comments was, “This is beautifully fresh, vibrant wine with a soft and savoury edge to it.  Cooked peas, tomato leaf and ample gooseberry make this wine juicy and refreshing”

This is great news for both Kono and Connoisseur Estates!
