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 763 half-litre bottles were ever made, and the wine is a medium sweet and extremely rich take on the grape. We think it's more of a cheeseboard or aperitif wine 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

Such a clarity on the nose, no botrytis influence, rather the grapes dehydrate giving very concentrated notes of the variety; tree ripened brown pears, red apples, ginger, honeysuckle and lifted spice aromatics.

Tastes

That same purity runs through the palate, like a Pinot Gris on steroids, fresh pears, apples and honey flavours with a zingy, zesty acidity that invigorates the palate giving balance and harmony to the palate. Wow this is intense, pure and amazing, definitely one to add to your collection….
