WINEMAKERS NOTES David Trafford:
VINTAGE CONDITIONS:
Slightly above average rainfall in winter followed by a hot dry spring and trouble-free growing season. A little rain delayed harvest slightly, but refreshed the struggling vines without causing much botrytis. The small berries and moderate ripening period produced concentrated grapes with lots of flavour and sugar. The grapes were picked in the cool mornings and laid out to dry on the racks in ideal dry conditions.

PRODUCTION:
The grapes for the De Trafford Winery Straw Wine Chenin Blanc were picked at optimum ripeness and laid out on drying racks in 70% shade for 3 weeks. This allows the grapes to concentrate sugars, acids and flavours, before reharvesting in the cool mornings. Fermented with natural yeasts and matured for 21 months using mostly new 225 l oak barrels – 60% French and 40% American. Racked while in barrel to remove heavy sediment and lightly bentonite fined. 15% included. The portion was reduced by about 20%.

TASTING NOTES:
The De Trafford Winery Straw Wine Chenin Blanc shows attractive yellow gold colour. Quite closed shortly after bottling, but with great intensity. A little more lime/lemon character together with the usual dried apricot, nuts, honey and buttered toast. The palate is intensely sweet yet not cloying, fresh and lively yet richly oxidative with a long clean and complex finish. Delicious with good patés, biscotti and various hard cheeses.

A rewarding challenge De Trafford Winery Straw Wine Chenin Blanc to match with many Desserts and special food!

These are naturally made, living wines which may deposit a sediment and / or tartrate crystals – a healthy sign of a handcrafted wine.
