94 Points - Cameron Douglas MS
"Lovely aromatics, varietal and intense. Layers of peach and elderflower, acacia and ripe red apple then honeysuckle. No mistaking the residual sweetness on the palate which is immediately contrasted by high acidity and flavours of fresh white and tropical fruits. Great texture and length - an excellent food wine. Totally smashable."
 
A pretty rare variety in New Zealand. Petit Manseng is a grape origninating in southwest France that performs the delicate balancing act of ripening very late while keeping its fresh, bright acidity. The result is wine that finishes dryish but richly ripe and complex on the palate. 
A must try for all foodies, great with strong cheeses and cured meat.
