Nelson Rose 2014
Te Mania Pinot Noir Rosé is a soft, subtle, fruity and elegant wine made from Pinot Noir grapes. Nicely chilled this wine is perfect as an aperitif or summertime drinking.
Nose: Attractive, vibrant raspberry and red currant aromas.
Palate: Deliciously creamy with fresh strawberry, and red currant flavours, a seamless palate and a clean, crisp finish. Made in a dry style with just a touch of residual sugar to provide an appealing balance.
Vintage: Made from Pinot Noir grapes and hand harvested from our vineyard. The fruit was de-stemmed, crushed and left overnight in the press to impart the Rose’s beautiful colour. The following morning we gently pressed the grapes. The juice was then cool fermented (50% wild) mostly in steel tanks to preserve the vibrant fresh Rose characters and 10% in old barrels fermented to add texture and complexity.
Organic Status: Certified Organic BioGro New Zealand.
Diet: Suitable for vegetarian diet.
Residual Sugar: 4.2 g/L
Acidity: 5.5 g/L
Te Mania's rosé has been consistently excellent. This year's rendition again offers plenty of attractive aromas of peach, citrus and strawberry on the nose, followed by a juicy palate that's lively and fruity. A generous style, the wine is well balanced by crisp acidity.
