MENU’s Wine of the Week. Tierhoek Straw wine NV

The ripe Chenin Blanc grapes from 30 year old trellised vines in Piekenierskloof are air dried on straw for 2 weeks to concentrate their flavour then fermented and matured in a Solera system of old barrels where new wine is added every year since 2007
Full, rich and very sweet with an immense concentration of dried apricots and honey, it has a great balance of acidity, just as it should. The total acid is 7.6 g/l and Residual Sugar is 272.8 g/l It. Sold in 375 ml bottles it is a perfect match for desserts like this, rich pates or with a good cheese board. Platter Score: 4½ stars, Neil Martin: 91/100. In a 375ml bottle from the farm at R170
For this week only: a special price of R150 if you quote this story Email:
