Petit Manseng is a grape variety that originates in South-West France and is commonly used to make a late harvest sweet wine. The vine has been in Australia for the better part of 40 years, arriving long before many of the new alternative varieties were here. Topper’s Mountain Wines produce one of the more interesting dry Petit Manseng wines, and on this edition of Let’s Taste I look at the 2016 vintage. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
