Churton Petit Manseng, Organic, Marlborough, New Zealand, 50cl Bottle 2017

Marlborough, New Zealand


Tasting Notes

Churton's sweet 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 produced by passerillage - practice of leaving grapes on the vine to dry, concentrating their flavours. The resulting wine is rich, persistent and mouth-filling, artfully balancing the extra sugar sweetness achieved through clean botrytis within it’s elegant framework.
