Te Mania Chardonnay 2018

The Nelson region has established a strong reputation for this classic variety producing many top award winning wines. Te Mania Chardonnay is an elegant wine made with just a little oak to compliment and show case the fresh fruity flavours. It can be enjoyed on its own or with a wide variety of dishes. It’s particularly good with seafood and white meat dishes.
Tasting: Nectarine and ripe citrus/grapefruit characters with some light oak aromas. Delicious ripe stonefruit with hints of citrus on a full palate with a silky texture and a light background of French oak. The palate has appealing weight, texture and a long fresh finish.
