2016 Petit Manseng
Rich, expansive, and rippling with energy, yet still focused and precise as it lingers on the palate. Fermented in a combination of concrete egg, large Acacia and oak puncheons, and foudre.
This is a wine of texture and intensity. It performs well into the winter months with its richness and density bringing more warmth and body to the palate than the average white wine. The aromas and flavors complement this personality with buoyant tropical notes anchored by a stony, saline core, all brought into precise focus in the finish.
Food Pairing: Dry Petit Manseng has opened our eyes to a whole new world of food pairing. While we generally dismiss white wine in the face of the rich foods that are traditionally paired with reds, we now have how a new option. Especially for the “fall back” months where the sun sets before supper and we crave food that warms us, Petit Manseng brings its own warmth and holds its place at the table through the holidays and into the coldest days of the year.
