Staff Focus: Tori Haysom

Continuing our monthly staff favourite series is our bubbly Auckland Account Manager, Tori.

Tori has completed up to WSET Level 3 in wine and has worked in both the hospitality industry and wine retail for over ten years. She is passionate about wine and the stories behind them. You’ll find her either roaming the streets of Auckland with her bag of goodies or expanding her personal wine horizons at home.

We sat down with Tori to ask her the burning question…

“What is your current favourite wine and why?”

2015 Domaine Vincent Carême Le Peu Morier

“When I am asked to choose a favourite wine… I always struggle, as the more I taste, the more I change my mind. I always, however, have one or two wine styles that introduced me to the wines on the edge – Vouvray made from Chenin Blanc being one of them. Vincent Carême’s “Le Peu Morier” is the epitome of what I call magic and is my current love if I had to choose just one.

Layered in lemon peel, beeswax, a cooling minerality and cheesecake crumbs – this wine is too good to be true. I find it impossible to focus on anything else during a sip… I dare you to try.”

“From one of the top of the new generation of Vouvray estates, this wine is a delicious medley of fruit flavors. With a touch of honey to go with the apple, and citrus to give extra freshness, this is a beautiful wine.”
