Te Mãnia is a family-owned Nelson winery, located near the beautiful coastline of Tasman Bay. Our vineyards flourish on the ancient alluvial terraces through which rivers flow from the mountains to the sea. These stony soils, combined with Nelson’s cool maritime climate and high sunshine hours, produce grapes and wines of the finest quality. The free spirit of Nelson’s idyllic lifestyle and climate is captured by the Harrier Hawk gliding on the breeze above our vineyards. Our vineyards are located on free draining stony clay loam soils which have proved excellent for producing wine grapes of exceptional quality. We also source some grapes from other vineyards on the plains and the surrounding hills which add complexity to our wines. The vines on average are cropped at a yield of between 3 and 5 tonnes to produce fruit with excellent flavours. The flavours are further enhanced by our long, slow, ripening period which commences in early February and carries through to harvest time - typically Read more »

  • Te Mania Sauvignon Blanc 2011


    Fresh on the nose and full of cut grass and jalapeño but with balance and an earthy base of golden kiwi fruit. Bright on entry and medium bodied, with plenty of retained CO2 adding a light spritz. This has nice intensity of fruit. High acid makes this fairly dry, though the ripeness shows some peachy character. The acid really drives the finish ... Read More

  • Te Mania Nelson Chardonnay 2009


    Pretty full barrel fermented nose here with lots of fresh oak-derived aromas accenting slightly roasted apple fruit. This is a touch a buttermilky in the mouth with an opulent, soft texture and a supple easy character. Notes of toasted bread dough on the mid-palate add some complexity that builds with layers of lime oil and red apple fruit on th... Read More

  • Te Mãnia Estate Reserve Pinot Noir 2005


    A spectacular PN, with tremendous depth and intensity. I bought it from the winery during a visit to New Zealand. The winery itself is fairly unassuming, but everything I tasted there was top notch. Nevertheless this wine, which they sell to the public only during Christmas, was a must-buy from the first taste.I picked up 2 bottles of the 2006 a... Read More
