SKU: 2020 Petit Manseng

We harvest the Petit Manseng grapes, a French varietal, later in the season to allow residual sugars to reach higher levels. As one of our newest wines, the Petit Manseng is a Jurançon-style wine, being both sweet and dry, thus offering the best of both worlds. With aromas of grapefruit rind and pineapple, and intense flavors of honeysuckle, dried apricot and sourdough, it finishes with the classic ‘touch of stone minerality.’ and is a delight for drinking and pairing with rich, flavorful dishes. 

Nose:  grapefruit rind, pineapple, lemongrass, jasmine, banana

Palate:  honeysuckle, dried apricot, kumquat, sourdough

Finish:  stone minerality, medium acid, crisp finish
