This is a screamingly brilliant dry Petit Nanseng. The nose is of aromatic tropical fruits, primarily at ripe pineapple. On the palate, the fruit goes to honeyed pineapple with laser-like passionfruit acidity. I just want to sit on the porch and drink this all afternoon long.

Tart on the top of the tongue - tropical with an orange zest finish. Would be great with Thai food or curries.

Petit Manseng. Pretty good, if a bit sweet (2% residual sugar). Strong smell of honeycomb to my nose, went well with spicy Thai basil chicken!

Delaplane 2014 Petit Manseng a little residual sugar coats the palate well. Pineapple and a little butter too? Lingers well on the palate.

A lot of cherry pit notes, which is very nice. Berrel fermented with lees aging.
