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 as a slightly more approachable expression of the Chatto style.
The 2019 Mania Pinot Noir is crafted using the fruit sourced from three distinct regional zones across Tasmania. An individual vineyard from each of the Huon Valley, Tamar Valley and the East Coast of Tasmania and including multiple clones have been masterfully blended contributing great nuance and detail to the wine.
Fabulously fruited and beautifully perfumed, the wine shows sweet raspberry, dark cherry, violet, anise and toasted nut characters. It's succulent and flavoursome on the palate with silky texture and fine tannins, finishing long and velvety.
