Petit Manseng is a very rare grape variety originating from Juracon in France.
It was historically used in the baptism of French royalty but today it is little known.
We are very excited about the potential of this forgotten gem.
A rich palate with an attractive chalky mouthfeel that displays pear, ripe peach and orange rind with hints of melon, almond meal and toasty oak. A wine and variety with a great future.
Light golden straw.
Pretty and lifted aroma of quince, white peach, pastry, vanilla, rose petal and lemon butter.
WINEMAKING & VITICULTURE
The grapes are grown in the north of Margaret River. The handpicked bunches are cooled overnight before whole bunch pressing in the morning to minimise the extraction of phenolics. The partially clarified juice is fermented in French oak barrels for 10 months with regular lees stirring to enhance the wine's texture.
