Te Mania Pinot Gris is a soft, subtle, fruity and elegant wine. This approachability makes it an excellent match for many different foods and cooking styles from spicy Asian dishes to grilled seafood.
Nose: Fragrant floral honeysuckle aromas mixed with tangelo and apple notes.
Palate: Delicious peach, rock melon and pear with rich caramelised apple flavours. Hints of Turkish delight and rose petals. A smooth, long lingering finish.
Vintage: Beautifully ripe fruit was harvested in March at 23.8 Brix. Lightly cropped vines at less than 2 tonnes per acre. Whole bunch pressed. Tiny berries produced wonderful concentrated fruit flavours which were preserved by fermenting the wine at cool temperatures.
Diet: Suitable for vegan diet.
Residual Sugar: 8 g/L
Acidity: 5.6 g/L
This is really good. It’s packed with delicious peach, mango, pear flavours with lovely floral lift. The palate is succulent and rounded with excellent weight and intensity, beautifully supported by whispering sweetness and refreshing acidity. It’s very long on the finish with delightful flavours.
