"Made with 100% Petit Manseng, this wine is a lovely dry white which exudes pineapple and white flowers on the nose, followed by kiwi, citrus, and pineapple flavors and a medium mouthfeel with a long, crisp finish. This vinifera grape, originally from the Jurancon area in southern France, has loose clusters, thick skins, and very small berries, making it quite disease resistant. It’s also fairly cold hardy compared to most other viniferas, and can be produced in both dry and off-dry versions with success. Winery founder Chris Pearmund has helped to start and consulted regarding the development of a significant number of wineries in central Virginia."
