A seriously powerful and interesting variety. Petit Manseng originates from the Jurancon appellation in South West France and is noted for having small berries and ripening very late in the season.
The wine has a lovely backbone of natural acidity with voluptuous flavours and mouth filling texture. The structure of this wine is unique with ultra-fine tannins giving a powerful edge.
It is a wine that stands out from the crowd and with age increases in complexity without yielding any freshness.

Pairs well with chilli crab, salted squid and Asian salads.
