Mania allows Jim Chatto to broaden his Tasmanian winemaking outside the Huon Valley, leveraging friendships built over the years to source parcels of fruit from small growers across the state. The Mania Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are a slightly more approachable expression of the Chatto style, perfect for leading restaurants. The 2016 Mania Tamar Valley Chardonnay is sourced from the Huon, Tamar and East Coast regions. Allowed to ferment naturally using wild yeast. Matured for ten months in French oak puncheons, fifteen percent new with battonage for three months post fermentation.

Mania is the “budget” label of Jim and Daisy Chatto, who also produce premium Tasmanian wines under their Isle and Chatto labels. This is a blend of fruit from three different regions; the Huon Valley, Tamar Valley and East Coast, hand-picked and sorted, wild fermented and matured in aged French oak puncheons for 10 months. Distributed by Fourth Wave Wines, this is well balanced and immediately accessible but still has the style and complexity for which Chatto is known. Well worth checking out.
