Locations

New Zealand

The New Zealand wine industry is one of the younger wine regions in the world, whose popularity grew immensely when Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc hit the world wine scene, quite unique in style when compared to the typical French Sancerre.

Wine is successfully cultivated on both the North and South islands from a latitude of 36 degrees in the North to 45 degrees for the most southerly wine region in the world, the South Island's Central Otago. The majority of regions are located in free-draining alluvial valleys except for Waiheke Island and Kawarau Gorge in Central Otago and benefit from the moderating effect of the maritime climate as no vineyard is more than 80 miles from the ocean. With plentiful sunshine hours and cool evening sea breezes, the grapes thrive.

Sauvignon Blanc is the major white variety people will think of when you mention New Zealand Whites, however fantastic Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and less commonly Viognier, Chenin Blanc and Pinot Blanc. Pinot Noir is the most widely planted red variety in New Zealand although Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot (Bordeaux Blends), Syrah are also grown and in even smaller amounts, Tempranillo and Montepulcianos can too be found. Sparkling wines of very high standards are also made in New Zealand.

The key wine regions in New Zealand include Auckland, Canterbury, Central Otago, Gisborne, Hawke's Bay, Marlborough and Nelson.

Nelson

Nelson is nestled on the top end of the South Island, two hours to the west of its famous neighbour Marlborough. The wineries are mostly located on the plains, southwest of the town of Nelson, and upon the hills of Upper Moutere.

The region receives a lot more rain than its neighbour Marlborough, however, also receives enough sunshine to balance out the rainfall. Nelson’s northern exposure gives it more second-highest total hours of sunshine in the whole country. The soil structure tends to clay loam over hard clay subsoils.

Heavier reds like Cabernet Sauvignon don’t do so well in Nelson, whereas lighter reds like Pinot Noir and even Montepulciano have had more success. In the whites, Chardonnay of very high quality is being produced, with lesser amounts of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Chenin Blanc are also cultivated.

Although it is one of the smaller wine regions, the fact that you can visit most of the wineries in a single day is a bonus!

About the brand Te Mania

Te Mānia (the Maori name for “The Plains”) is a family-owned Nelson winery, located near the beautiful coastline of Tasman Bay. The vineyards here flourish on the ancient alluvial terraces through which rivers flow from the mountains to the sea. It’s these stony soils, combined with Nelson’s cool maritime climate and high sunshine hours, that produce grapes and wines of the finest quality. The Te Mānia vineyards in Nelson enjoy the most sunshine hours of all New Zealand grape growing regions. This sunshine and warmth are moderated by the afternoon sea breeze which rolls in cooling the vineyards. This gradual ripening over a long growing season from September till harvest between late March till the end of April slowly builds intense flavour in the grapes.

Combining this fabulous Nelson climate with ancient free-draining stony clay loam soils is perfect for handcrafting vibrant fruit driven white wines and well-structured elegant red wines of exceptional quality. Helped along with managing the vineyard organically, the team at Te Mānia can truly express the natural terroir of the vineyard and environment in their wines.
