Petit Manseng

From the Honah Lee vineyard, this is fermented mostly in French oak barrels, one-third new, with a small percentage in stainless steel tank, and was bottled after six months of aging with no malolactic fermentation. It is bone dry, but brimming with the sweetness of tropical fruit notes, and is full bodied and very concentrated. Made possible by our unique growing conditions, this style of wine is specific to Petit Manseng grown in central Virginia.
