Marlborough, New Zealand

Tasting Notes

Our 2017 Petit Manseng is bright, yellow gold with green illuminated flecks. It has a complex, aromatic bouquet of lemon wood flowers and slightly honeyed quince, with an element of almond or peach kernel. In the mouth our Petit Manseng is full bodied starting sweet and rich with ripe pear, candy peel and a touch of caramel. This leads to a fine long finish with the balance being supplied by racy citrus acidity and a touch of phenolics reminiscent of the graininess in quince. This is the first Churton Petit Manseng we have produced by passerillage. The resulting wine is rich, persistent and mouth-filling, artfully balancing the extra sugar sweetness achieved through clean botrytis within it’s elegant framework.
