Vintage Notes by Hank Beckmeyer: "Petit Manseng always has an abundance of acidity. That's one thing you can always count on. So, when the heat spike hit, it turned out to be perfect weather for this grape! Acids dropped--just a little--into what I would call "user-friendly range."

Winemaking Notes: The grapes were whole cluster pressed into tanks. Fermentation occurred with ambient yeast and completed in spring 2018. Malolactic was only partial this time around.

Tasting Notes: La Clarine Farm Petit Manseng is floral on the nose with just a touch of bruised apple skin, ginger and guava. It has a long, very clean and refreshing finish. Utterly compelling and utterly delicious, this wine is electric white lightning in a bottle. Drink up!
