Petit Manseng – Cavender Creek Vineyards

Our wine tonight is the Petit Manseng from Cavender Creek Vineyards in Dahlonega, Georgia

Petit Manseng is increasingly becoming a flavored cultivar of vineyards in North Georgia.

Dahlonega Plateau AVA.

Vintage 2017.

Color of polished gold, like rays of bright sunshine.

Citrus and floral bouquet and full bodied on the palate, this is not a light white wine.

Semi-sweet with flavor notes of papaya, bananas foster, canned peaches in syrup, dandelion, honeysuckle, and sliced pears, finishing with lingering notes of wildflower honey and a grainy menerality.

13.2% ABV.

Pair with spicy Thai or Asian food.

WineryEscapades scores at 85 points!

Cavender Creek has quickly become one of our favorite wineries of the Dahlonega Plateau.

The tasting room and outdoor patio have recently undergone an amazing renovation.
