Notes Our Pinot Noir grapes were 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 moved to stainless steel tanks where it was cool fermented to preserve the vibrant fresh Rose characters.

Te Mānia
Te Mānia (the Maori name for “The Plains”) is a family-owned Nelson winery, located near the beautiful coastline of Tasman Bay. The vineyards here flourish on the ancient alluvial terraces through which rivers flow from the mountains to the sea. It’s these stony soils, combined with Nelson’s cool maritime climate and high sunshine hours, that produce grapes and wines of the finest quality. The Te Mānia vineyards in Nelson enjoy the most sunshine hours of all New Zealand grape growing regions. This sunshine and warmth are moderated by the afternoon sea breeze which rolls in cooling the vineyards. This gradual ripening over a long growing season from September till harvest between late March till the end of April slowly builds intense flavour in the grapes.



Combining this fabulous Nelson climate with ancient free-draining stony clay loam soils is perfect for handcrafting vibrant fruit driven white wines and well-structured elegant red wines of exceptional quality. Helped along with managing the vineyard organically, the team at Te Mānia can truly express the natural terroir of the vineyard and environment in their wines.
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!
