Farm House Organic Straw Wine 2015

WINEMAKER:
Tania Kleintjes

ORIGIN:
Stellenbosch

TERROIR / SOIL:
At Spier Wine Estate the differences in altitude, aspect, solar radiation and wind exposure results in significant mesoclimate differences over short distances. This, coupled with variations in soil (mainly Escourt/Pinedene transitioning to Cartef), creates a terroir that ensures full and complex wines with unique character and style.

WINEMAKING:
The bunches were picked at optimal ripeness and placed on straw bales. The grapes were dried until they were almost raisin-like. In this process the water evaporates, concentrating flavours, acidity and sugar within the shriveled berries. The wild fermentation took place in a barrel in a regulated atmosphere guarding against contamination and overheating. The wine aged for a further 12 months on the lees before bottling.

ANALYSIS:
Alc: 11.05 % vol
TA: 6.5 g/L
RS: 158.1 g/L
pH: 3.62

APPEARANCE:
Deep golden straw with a viscous appearance

TASTING NOTE:
Enticing blend of dried apricots, marmalade and almond aromas on the palate. The sweetness is balanced by a fresh natural acidity and long lingering finish.

SERVE WITH:
Best served chilled with dessert. Pairs well with an apricot yogurt mousse or fresh fruit tarts.
