Download info sheet


Gros Manseng is one of our great success stories with alternative varieties. Its small berries, tough skins and open bunches make it very resistant to fungal diseases, the bane of our high summer rainfall. Yet if one of our white varieties reflects the cold and wet vintage the most it would be the Gros Manseng. Very elegant wine with complex aromas of white flowers and all kinds of juicy citruses. Taut orange juice like acidity gives the wine enormous vibe and energy to carry on lemon and grapefruit flavours to a long zesty finish.
