I chose a Japanese word because I love Japan. I love everything from the ultra-modern happy face is Shibuya to the serious magic silence of Kyoto. I chose “sometimes” because everyone waits for moments that change one’s destiny. By simple chance or meeting a new person, tokidoki is the hope, the hidden energy everyone has inside that give us the strength to face a new day and dream something positive, that something magical will happen to us.
Ciao, My name is Simone Legno.
tokidoki Sauvignon Blanc 2017 is a blend of 50 Giesen chosen vineyards, spaced across the length and breadth of Marlborough’s Awatere and Wairau Valleys. The soils range free draining alluvial/silt to clay loams. Having such a range of vineyards offers a wide selection of maturity parameters in terms of sugar and acid profile, but also a huge aroma and flavor spectrum. Our philosophy is to crop vines in balance with each site optimizing the vines ability to ripen fruit evenly and consistently to produce wine that reflects the true terroir of each site. We feel this is a true representation of the classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Winemaker: Andrew Blake
