Te Mānia Nelson Pinot Gris 2015

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 peach, 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 whole bunch pressed. The tiny berries produced wonderful concentrated fruit flavours which were preserved by fermenting the wine at cool temperatures. A portion was fermented with wild yeast and all the lees were stirred for 4 months to add complexity and texture.

Diet:  Suitable for a vegan diet.

Alcohol:  13.5%                 

Residual Sugar:6.5 g/L                           

Acidity: 5.8 g/L

 

It is youthful and fragrant on the nose showing nectarine, rockmelon and fresh pear characters with a lovely floral lift. The palate offers attractive fruit intensity and smooth texture with good mid palate weight, finishing long and succulent.

Wonderfully balanced and expressed, and highly enjoyable.

««««½ Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2016

 

This is a richly varietal wine, mouthfilling with vibrant pear, lychee and spice flavours, a sliver of sweetness and very satisfying depth. Michael Cooper, Listener, Sept 2016
