Monogram Collection Straw Wine
Made in the traditional and age-old method of air-drying grapes on straw mats, to shrivel them and concentrate their flavour. A sweet wine from 100% Viognier. The process has toned down its usual perfume-laden exuberance to give pure glacé fruit, pineapple, with dried apricot, a lovely nutty overlay, the savouriness particularly showing in the flavours. Sweet but not too much, has luscious drinkability, there’s a fresh seam which offsets the sugar, adds vitality, zest, you’re experiencing the essence of the grape, in a concentrated form. It spent 24 months in a 3rd fill oak barrel and just one barrel was produced, only 600 small bottles. Something rare and special.
