Tim Atkin MW South Africa Report 2018: 95 points

Hooiwijn Straw Wine 2017, Donkiesbaai

£20.95 per bottle

About this wine

Donkiesbaai Hooiwijn’s aromas of refreshing citrus peel, orange blossoms, granola and ripe mango give this wine a beautifully complex and layered bouquet.  The upfront flavors of dried apricots, honey, dried apple slices and ripe mangos lead the palate into a subtle hint of dusty straw and marmalade, integrating well to reveal an opulent and lingering finish. With only 4000 bottles made in the 2017 vintage and recently scoring 95 points in the Tim Atkin MW South Africa 2018 report, this is a stunning dessert wine not to be missed.

Add to this list Stellenbosch in South Africa and the picture is complete. A waxy, citrus and cream styled white variety with stunning acidity and natural balance, it can produce deeply-flavoured wines from dry through to botrytis-affected sweet styles. It is a natural in every sense and in the hands of the greatest growers in South Africa shows the shimmering potential of the Rainbow Nation on the world stage."
