Rustenberg Straw wine is deliciously sweet, yet still bright, fresh and complex, with honeyed characters and hints of lemon.
Fully ripened Chenin Blanc and Crouchen Blanc grapes were hand-picked at 23 - 23.5 Balling, then laid out on straw to dry for 4 - 5 weeks. This allows the grapes to slowly dehydrate, concentrating the natural sugar and flavour of the grapes. These raisined grapes are then gently pressed @ 39 - 42 Balling and the small quantity of sweet juice obtained is inoculated and fermented in 3rd-fill 300-litre barrels for 8 months to produce a luscious sweet wine.
76% Chenin Blanc, 24% Crouchen Blanc
