From the winemaker:
A new vintage of the Petit Manseng, and a slightly different expression from last year's. As you may remember, the 2013 bottling was all about intensity, particularly acidic intensity. This year's, the 2014, shows a subtler, more integrated acidity, which allows the flavors (lime, pineapple, pear, guava, baked apple) to take center stage. All the intensity is there, but a little more in balance. It will be much friendlier to drink in the short term, and yet should, like the 2013 certainly will, benefit from some time in the cellar. Drink chilled, but not too cold.
