Gros Manseng is relatively unknown; its potential as a winemaking grape was unrecognised for years. Thick-skinned and wild, it was often blended away anonymously and held in lower regard than its parent, Petit Manseng. This Uva Non Grata Gros Manseng, Vin de France is a celebration of the varietal's character, creating a zingy, wine that is one of the fruitiest and most enjoyable you'll encounter but with an intriguing and delightful suggestion of incense-smoke. Enjoy as an apéritif, or to accompany pungent cheeses and aromatic Middle Eastern and Eastern cuisine.

Vineyard and Winery
Gros Manseng, with its thick skin and small berry size, can both ripen beautifully or over-ripen whilst retaining its acidity and shunning the advances of botrytis, giving both dry and sweet wines.To show this fascinating variety at its best, we've made two wines and blended them together: a bright and zingy Gros Manseng fermented to dryness into which we've blended a smaller proportion of late harvest Gros Manseng, bringing with it a delightful fruitiness and exotic spice.
