2021 Petit Manseng
Petit Manseng is typically a high acid, high sugar grape in Virginia. The key to its success is being able to balance the two without extremes in either direction. Our 2021 Petit Manseng is fresh and expressive white, exuding aromas of pineapple, toasted coconut, and fresh almond. Flavors of exotic quince paste, candied citrus fruit, and starfruit lead your mind to tropical settings.
This Petit Manseng has a surprisingly fresh and light finish, which is due to the fact that this Eastern Valley sight is able to ripen with more balance than you would typically see with other expressions. This wine was fermented in a tank and then transferred to neutral oak barrels. As the wine ages, it will lose acidity slightly and begin to show more richness and depth in mouth feel. The peak for this wine is within 2-5 years from vintage.
