Nelson Rose 2015
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: CertifiedConversion Organic Asure Quality.
Diet: Suitable for vegan diet.
Residual Sugar: 4.3 g/L
Acidity: 4.9 g/L
It is instantly appealing on the nose displaying floral, stone fruit and citrus characters with a touch of red cherry. The palate shows juicy mouthfeel and excellent fruit intensity, nicely framed by bright acidity. It is refreshing and friendly. ««««½ Stars

Super cool, super refreshing and super quenching with the slightest tickle of spritz to the texture, and flavours of strawberry, rhubarb, earlyseason summer plums and a touch of earthy savouriness a foil to the fruit sweetness; this tasty watermelonhued tipple is a treat.
