Te Mania Pinot Gris 2019
Regular price $22.99 NZD
Te Mānia 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.
Tasting: Fragrant floral honeysuckle aromas mixed with tangelo and apple notes. Delicious citrus, rock melon and pear with rich caramelised apple flavours. Hints of Turkish delight and rose petals. A smooth, textural wine with fine tannins and a long lingering finish.
Winemaking: Beautifully ripe fruit was whole bunch pressed. The tiny berries produced wonderful concentrated fruit flavours which were preserved by fermenting the wine at cool temperatures. A portion was fermented with wild yeast and all the lees were stirred for 5 months to add complexity and texture.
Diet: This wine is suitable for a vegan diet.
Certified Organic: Asure Quality.
Analysis: Alcohol 13% , Residual Sugar 6.2g/L, Acidity 5.6g/L
Pristine and inviting, the fabulously expressed bouquet shows green pear, apricot, floral and lemon peel aromas, leading to an elegantly flavoursome palate with juicy fruit intensity and vibrant acidity. Beautifully styled and highly enjoyable. At its best now to 2022. Certified organic. .
