Te Mania

Te Mania Reserve Chardonnay 2011 Nelson 13.5%
N: A gentle fruit core of peachy/nectarine and citrus flesh and a little lemon pith note, are surrounded by lightly spiced oak - toasty with a light butterscotch suggestion. The vanillin is easily spotted (a little American oak - perhaps).
4.5 Stars

P: I like the texture of this wine: it is creamy with a mealy layer. The fruit platter returns to the palate with a sound balance between the citrus and stone fruit flavors. Dry, balanced, well made with a long (ish) finish.
4.5 Stars
