Te Mania

Te Mania Nelson Pinot Noir 2010 14%
N: Youthful, fruity and aromatic with Pinot Noir aromas, but also still integrating. Strawberry and light cherry fruit aromas, lighter slightly sweet oak aromas, overall sound with moderate complexity.

P: Strawberry and cherry flavors with the cherry layer showing a tart side, dry with medium+ acid and tannins, moderate oak and showing some complexity. This wine does need some more integration time reaching its plateau in around 2 years - 2015. In the meantime a food oriented example where vibrant and fresh flavored cuisine will work best (beef carpaccio with caper berries and extra virgin olive oil).
