Description

Vin de Paille roughly translates to 'straw wine', a common style of sweet wine made in the old world by drying grapes laid out on straw. Paul Pujol makes his from Pinot Gris, harvested at the same time as his Prophet's Rock Pinot Gris, the grapes are then laid out in the winery for drying. Only a few hundred half-litre bottles have ever been made, and the wine is a medium sweet and extremely rich take on the grape. We think it's more of a cheeseboard or an aperitif wine (with Foie gras) than a dessert wine, with its lovely, honeyed fig and apple flavours. One of the only Vin de Paille in NZ, it's a collector's item that will cellar beautifully.

Smells

a heady perfume of dried nectarines, orange blossom, honeysuckle, lemon crystallised jubes, lime sherbet and even nuances of chocolates.

Tastes

One sip and your legs will become weak, seriously it’s that gooood….An unctuous, luscious, creamy style with a powerful, striking mid-palate, balanced by the fine acid thread. A little like making toffee when it starts to thicken and you can lift a fine thread with a spoon, only with a salivating freshness due to the lemon, zesty acid. Quite simply, heaven in a glass…
