HALF Rustenberg, Straw Wine, Coastal Region, 2019

From 81.5% Chenin Blanc and 18.5% Viognier dried on straw in the Italian passito manner to concentrate juice and sugar. Very luscious (an amazing 226 grams of residual sugar per litre); honey-soaked raisins with excellent balancing acidity.

The straw wine has been a speciality at Rustenberg since Adi Badenhorst created this wine about 15 years ago, but we are told this is the last vintage of this sumptuous, great value sweetie. Now-2025

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
