Te Mania & Richmond Plains’ 2011 Aromatic Releases

With certification for organics and biodynamic regimes fully in place for Richmond Plains and much of the vineyard resource for the allied Te Mania label handled the same way, one can sense a progressively increasing balance appearing in the wines that are being released, possibly reflecting the condition of the vines as they mature and come into greater harmony with the land. Some more cynical may consider I'm imagining it, but the new release aromatics reviewed here are pleasing wines. I'm sure the Harreys and the Jensens, respective owners of Te Mania and Richmond Plains are well pleased with the wines and the work of their winemaker Steve Gill in preserving the quality of the fruit.
