The Donkiesbaai Hooiwijn is liquid gold in a glass. Commonly known as straw wine because of the way it is made, the Chenin Blanc dried on straw mats shows the essence of the fruit – fresh peaches and persimmon, with mandarin marmalade, grilled peaches and orange blossom on the nose. It follows through on the palate showing flavours of candied ginger, almond pastries and dried herbs. This is a lush, rich wine kept fresh by its tart apple-like acidity and lingers almost indefinitely on the palate.

The Donkiesbaai Hooiwijn works well with sweet chocolate or fruit-based desserts, as it does with more savoury dishes like a cheese platter, foie gras or even creamy poultry dishes and even sushi.

This is a 375ml format.
