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.
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.

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
