"The 2015 Petit Manseng "South River Vineyard" is unoaked. It comes in with eight grams per liter of residual sugar and 13.5% alcohol. Fruity and off dry, this is a beautifully balanced Petit Manseng. It tastes great. It is easy to love. It is fresh and glorious in its youth--but in a restrained way. Apricots wash over your palate as it sits there. It isn't short of flavor, in other words, but nothing hits you over the head, either. I was trying think of what I liked best about this. Some of the Petit Mansengs in this report stand out for their energy, power or richness. Ultimately, I think what stands out here is its perfect balance. Nothing stands out. It is easy to drink, ripe and tasty and wonderfully fresh. It may not have quite the aging potential of some--we'll see. I'm also not sure I want it to lose what it does best here--be young and fresh. Drink it now and you and your friends will find your appreciation of this growing with every sip. - Mark Squires"
