Tasting Notes

Colour Ruby-Red
Nose Lovely lifted nose with red cherry and mocha notes combined with savoury, spicy aromas.
Palate Full fruit flavours of red cherries and raspberries. Savoury, gamey flavours with hints of leather balanced with elegant tannins add complexity to this wine which delivers a long elegant finish. This wine will continue to develop complexity over the next couple of years.
Food Pairing Duck, Mushrooms, Salmon or Tuna
Cellaring 3-5 Years
Notes Te Mania Pinot Noir is made in an elegant appealing style which can be enjoyed when young but will also benefit from a little cellaring allowing it to develop more complex characters.

Nelson
Nelson is nestled on the top end of the South Island, two hours to the west of its famous neighbour Marlborough. The wineries are mostly located on the plains, southwest of the town of Nelson, and up on the hills of Upper Moutere.



The region receives a lot more rain than its neighbour Marlborough, however also receives enough sunshine to balance out the rainfall. Nelson’s northern exposure gives it more second highest total hours of sunshine in the whole country. The soil structure tends to clay loams over hard clay subsoils.



Heavier reds like Cabernet Sauvignon don’t do so well in Nelson, where lighter reds like Pinot Noir and even Montepulciano have had more success. In the whites, Chardonnay of very high quality is being produced, with lesser amounts of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Chenin Blanc are also cultivated.



Although it is one of the smaller wine regions, the fact that you can visit most of the wineries in a single day is a bonus!
