Hooiwijn (Straw Wine) 2023

Hooiwijn (Straw Wine) 2023



100% Chenin Blanc, naturally dried grapes.
The vines are 38 & 20 year old unirrigated bush vines that are planted in deep sandy soils. At an altitude of 520m above sea level, the vineyards experience a warm climate with cooling evening winds.

Grapes are harvested on six dates and left on straw mats for 3 weeks to dry. This allows sugars and acids to concentrate, and flavours to fully develop. Grapes are destemmed and gently pressed before being transferred into a barrel for fermentation. The fermentation process is stopped by filtration when the wine reaches an alcohol level of approximately 10%. Hooiwijn is matured in seasoned 500l French oak barrels for 6 months before being bottled. Only 3685 bottles were made.

TASTING NOTES: Pale gold with vivid aromas of Seville marmalade and honeycomb. Silky sweet on the palate, revealing glazed apricots, candied citrus, and a hint of fresh ginger. Finely balanced and light on the finish.

Bottle Size:   375ml
Alcohol:   10,5 %
