De Trafford Straw Wine 2016 Bottle size: 375ml

South Africa, Stellenbosch
Out of stock
'Attractive deep yellow colour. Intense honey, apricot, nuts and passion fruit nose. The palate is sweet and concentrated with just enough acidity and oak tannins to compliment and deliver a long, lingering finish. This wine is a dessert all on its own - a real treat after the meal. Delicious with biscotti and various nuts. Compliments slightly tart fruit desserts and good pate's beautifully.' – David Trafford, Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2015 vintage:
'Consistently among South Africa’s greatest sweet wines, this amazing, straw dried Chenin Blanc is exotic and concentrated with honey, crème brûlée and a slight “rancio” note. Complex and concentrated with a good balance between its 265 grams of sugar, extract, acidity and subtle wood. Drink 2018-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 95/100

'SA’s first air-dried, naturally fermented, oak-aged chenin dessert. 2015 steps up with wave upon wave of exotic dried tropical fruit, roasted nuts, honey & hints of vanilla, balanced by a swish of fresh lemon on the finish. 375 ml.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (91/100)
