CHRISMONT Petit Manseng 2022
A zesty addition to the Chrismont tasting line up, Petit Manseng hails from the South West of France and is packed with distinct spicy characters that make the perfect food match sing.
COLOUR: Straw to pale gold.
AROMA: Pawpaw, yellow peach and citrus aromas, with a honey and cashew complexity.
PALATE: Subtle sweetness with nutty tropical fruit flavours that lead into characteristic mouth-watering natural acidity that persists through to the finish.
“Fruit is picked late in the season to allow full maturation and tempering of the high natural acidity. Fruit is then gently pressed keeping only free run juice, which is allowed to spontaneously ferment in both stainless steel and old French oak barriques. Due to its high natural acidity, some of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and some is left with residual sugar to balance the palate. Maturation on lees for nine months helps to develop the flavours before being prepared for bottling just before Christmas.” Warren Proft, winemaker
