Manon “Peaches” 2019
Forest Range, Australia
Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Savignin, Pinot Gris (Skin Contact)
Tim Webber and Monique Milton are the duo running Manon Farm where they began making wine in 2016. These grapes have the luxury of high elevation and cool breezes from the ocean while growing in beds of red clay, quartz and schist. The grapes produce concentrated juice with a load of flavor and distinct minerality. We bought this wine because someone told us a lovely story about having a 10 hour lunch with the crew at Manon just before the Australian border closed for COVID-19. You won’t forget this bottle.
