A delicate wine on the bouquet but one that dances across the palate. Luscious fresh stone fruit and pear intertwine with oak to great success. The wine is lifted by a lick of acidity. Pleasing and complex, with a dry finish.
Sweet wines of this style are not only suited to traditional desserts; served as an aperitif it will drink well with savoury dishes & tapas such as green olives stuffed with white anchovies, Manchego with quince paste or try with salt cod fritters.
Inspired by the rare and luscious vin de paille of France's Rhone Valley, made from 100% Marsanne grapes.
In both France and Italy a traditional method of obtaining concentrated sugars and flavours is to lay harvested grapes on straw mats where they are left in the sun to dehydrate.
Enjoy with: The freshness of this sweet wine loves fruit based desserts, think of the Australian icon - Peach Melba - for inspiration. Alternately, it will serve equally well as an aperitif - saltiness is its perfect counter point -try Manchego with quince paste, green olives, fried whitebait or salt cod fritters.
