TOSQ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2009 and 2010

08-Aug-2012

Carl and Sue Thompson have been grapegrowers in Central Otago for over a decade. Planting their 4 ha ‘Terrace' vineyard in the Pisa district, just north of Cromwell in 2001, they had been selling their fruit to different producers. The Thompsons decided to produce a wine under their own label, 2009 being the first vintage. Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir is produced from 1 ha and 3 ha of each variety respectively, but some fruit is still contracted out. The vineyard is tended organically, following biodynamic practices by Sue, and winemaking is by Dan and Sarah-Kaye Dineen at the Maude winery in Wanaka. The brand TOSQ is based on the first letters of the Thompson parents and sons names – Thomo (as Carl is known as), Oscar, Sue and Quinn. www.tosq.co.nz
