About The Wine
Jared Dixon tackles a little know variety here from the vines owned and managed by Topper's Mountain.
The way Jared treats this Petit Manesng sees it turn out something like a rich and weighty Chardonnay. Barrel ferment and plenty of time on lees gives this a wonderful generosity in the mouth.
If you're looking for that warm and fuzzy feeling that a big creamy Chardonnay gives you but want to try something new, this Petit Manseng will fit the bill perfectly.
About Jilly Wines
Jared Dixon is a lone ranger on his own mission in the New England wine region.
His wines are made from interesting varieties grown on unique vineyards, sites he classes as ‘undiscovered gems.’ His winemaking is extremely hands-off, allowing the full expression of the fruit to be the focus of every wine. They are fun, don't take themselves too seriously and have a distinct energy about them.
Jared is one of Northern NSW's most exciting and impassioned young winemakers. Where he takes his idiosyncratic label from here is anyone's guess.
