Te Mānia Nelson Pinot Gris 2012

Te Mania Pinot Gris is a soft, subtle, fruity and elegant wine.  This approachability makes it an excellent match for many different foods and cooking styles from spicy Asian dishes to grilled seafood.

Nose:  Fragrant floral honeysuckle aromas mixed with tangelo and apple notes.

Palate:  Delicious citrus, rock melon and pear with rich caramelised apple flavours.  Hints of Turkish delight and rose petals.  A smooth, long lingering finish.

Vintage:   Beautifully ripe fruit was hand harvested in March at 23.6 Brix after a superb, long, dry summer.  Lightly cropped vines at less than 2 tonnes per acre.  Whole bunch pressed.  Tiny berries produced wonderful concentrated fruit flavours which were preserved by fermenting the wine at cool temperatures.

Alcohol:  14%                 

Residual Sugar: 7 g/L                           

Acidity:  5.7 g/L

«««« Stars - Michael Cooper

  Fullish straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on rim.  This has a very clear, focussed and fresh bouquet of white stonefruits and delicate floral aromas, along with honeysuckle and spices.  Off-dry to taste, finely concentrated flavours of stonefruits, honeysuckle and minerals form an elegant core and a smooth flowing mouthfeel.  The fruit shows some succulence and richness and soft acidity combines with a fine textured line to provide a rounded palate line.  A little alcohol warmth and power emerges and carries the flavours to a long, dry finish.  This is a clean, subtly rich, dry Pinot Gris with smooth textures.  Serve with antipasto and first courses over the next 3+ years. «««« Stars

- Raymond Chan

It's beautifully ripe on the nose showing yellow peach, mango, citrus and pear notes with a touch of mixed spice. The palate is succulent and weighty with excellent texture and intensity, leading to a lengthy, expansive finish. At its best: now to 2016.
