The informative bit; The Petit Manseng grape is an important contributor to the sweet wines made in the far South-Western reaches of France. More commonly blended with other local grape varieties, it’s rare to see the Petit Manseng on its own as it is here. This wine is a crisper alternative to better known sticky-sweet wines such as Sauternes, more similar to a southern France Muscat in style.

Tasting notes; Sweet but with a fresh acidity with both orange and pineapple flavours.

Drinking hints and tips: Perfect with a cheese plate, specifically blue cheese. This will last in the fridge for a couple of weeks, so no need to drink all at once.
