The 2015 Straw Wine (if you are looking for the 2014, it was not produced) is 100% Chenin Blanc as usual from schist and granite soils, although Andrea Mullineux pointed out that they look at the bunches as they need to avoid rot, whilst the bunches cannot be too small as they shrivel into not much. Delivering around 290 grams per liter of residual sugar, it has a generous clear honey, marzipan, almond and quince scented bouquet that is well defined. The palate is beautifully balanced, the acidity slicing through the viscous honeyed fruit, leaving a sense of freshness in the mouth that leaves you desiring more. One of the most elegant straw wines produced so far by Chris and Andrea.
Deep golden straw in colour, with a rich, viscous appearance. The nose and palate is a complex, enticing blend of dried peaches, apricots and marmalade, with savoury, nutty aromas of almonds, marzipan and honey. The intense mouth-feel is balanced by a clean, fresh and very long finish of dried apricots. The wine is best served chilled. -- Winery
