2019 Straw Wine
Made in the traditional 'Passito' way this 'Straw Wine' is delicious, and a real bargain to boot. After picking the grapes - they are laid out on woven mats next to the winery to dry in the sunshine and intensify their flavour and sweetness, The results are incredibly satisfying - sweet, yet still bright, fresh and complex, with honeyed characters and hints of lemon. The perfect partner for your favourite pudding! L&S (Dec 2019)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Vineyards producing the grapes for Rustenberg's wines climb the rich red slopes of the Simonsberg and Helderberg. The style of wine determines the vineyard to be used: Rustenberg has a history of success with reds.
The viticulturist, Nico Walters, and his dedicated team have been working hard to rejuvenate their vineyards by planting virus-free vines imported from France. A small-scale nursery has been started for propagation, providing available rootstock for upgrading, replanting and experimentation. Controlled irrigation is used when necessary to alleviate stressed vines and maximise the quality of the grapes. All grapes are hand-harvested in the early mornings and all vineyard blocks vinified separately, then blended for added complexity.
