Uva Non Grata Gros Manseng, Vin de France 2019
Thick-skinned and wild, Gros Manseng is relatively unknown. For years, it was held in lower regard than its equally obscure parent, Petit Manseng, and blended away anonymously.
To get the best out of Gros Manseng, two wines have been blended together: a bright and zingy Gros Manseng fermented to dryness into which has been blended a smaller proportion of late harvest Gros Manseng, bringing with it a delightful fruitiness and exotic spice. Fresh, crisp and lip smacking with a sweet note.
Zingy, incense-smoked and glorious, this is loud and proud Gros Manseng. This makes for a mega apéritif, otherwise try with stinky cheeses and aromatic middle-eastern and eastern cuisines.
