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.
Nose: Nectarine and ripe citrus/grapefruit characters with some light oak.
Palate: 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.

Analysis: Alcohol: 13% Residual Sugar: 2.3 Acidity: 6.0 g/L
It is elegantly expressed on the nose displaying white nectarine, rockmelon, mandarin and vanilla characters, leading to a succulent palate that is beautifully ripe and rounded. The wine shows lovely fruit purity combined with subtle infusion of stylish oak. At its best: now to 2019.
