Te Mania

Certified Organic

Te Mania Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2014 13%
A bouquet packed with ripe fresh fruit suggestions with sweet citrus and peach leading the charge; sweet hay, stony soils and mild grassy attributes - all displaying a great energy and flow. On the palate - vibrant and expressive with spice laden fruit, highly energised acidity and a generous flavorful finish. 
4.5 Stars

Te Mania Nelson Pinot Gris 2014 14%
Fresh lively fruit bouquet with sweet pear and apple suggestions, quite floral too with some white flower suggestions and honeysuckle; a gentle white pepper and pear skin note. On the palate - juicy, fresh, lively and tasty - what's not to like about this wine; flavors reflect the nose, high(ish) fresh and expressive acidity dances nicely on the palate; the finish is persistent with medium+ length. Balanced, well made; drink now and through 2015.
4.5 Stars

Te Mania Nelson Gewurztraminer 2014 14%
Quietly spicy, generously fruity and lush; aromas of white fleshed fruits both tree and stone, gentle white spices and delicate florals. On the palate - just dry with an immediate punch of spice, fruit and juiciness. Flavors reflect the nose with a gentle warmth of alcohol pushing these through the palate; medium acidity and full creamy texture. Balanced and well made.
3.5 stars

Te Mania Nelson Pinot Noir Rose 2014 14%
Lots of light red fruit aromas with strawberry first then a mix of melon and other cherry like red fruits; some gentle floral attributes; clean, fresh lively. On the palate - just dry with some very plush and juicy light red fruit flavors; medium+ acidity and very low tannin. Balanced, juicy and well made.
