In the Jurançon region of France where it originates from, the grape is more acidic so it is mainly used to create sweeter wines or dessert wines, which balances nicely with the acidity. However, Michael has been making his in a dry style. The grape is up-and-coming in Charlottesville and more wineries are creating a dry Petit Manseng as it ripens here with less acidity. This wine is our heaviest white and is structured like a Chardonnay.  It transmits a grilled flavor, hinting of grilled pineapple and mango.  It is very aromatic, with a bright, tropical and pleasant acid on the finish that balances out the up front weight.  Pairs well with heavy shellfish and chicken dishes.

We discovered this wine on the wine list at Inn at Little Washington. It is beautiful, fragrant w peach and pear, full like a good Viognier. Perfect for the seafood courses on the 7 course menu. I’m a big fan now, going to order it for Thanksgiving dinner!
