De Trafford Straw Wine, 2003 (Chenin Blanc)
$30-35 per 375 ml bottle
This is definitely one of my favorite wines from South Africa. A beautiful yellow-gold color. On the nose some orange, lemon, mango, apricots and honey. On the palate layers of tropical citrus fruit, honey, raisin, peach and mango. A long clean and complex wine. This is high quality sweet wine and its pretty nice in just about all vintages.

Interesting. Importer?
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
