The Last Straw is our venerable and distinctive 100% Marsanne. This sweet wine is inspired by the fabulous vin de paille of France’s Rhône Valley.
In both France and Italy a traditional method of obtaining concentrated sugars and flavours is to lay harvested grapes on straw mats where they are left in the sun to dehydrate.
Enjoy with: The freshness of this sweet wine loves fruit based desserts, think of the Australian icon - Peach Melba - for inspiration. Alternately, it will serve equally well as an aperitif - saltiness is its perfect counter point -try Manchego with quince paste, green olives, fried whitebait or salt cod fritters.
A delicate wine on the bouquet but one that dances across the palate. Luscious fresh stone fruit and pear intertwine with oak to great success. The wine is lifted by a lick of acidity. Pleasing and complex, with a dry finish.
