Tim Atkin - Wine Maker(s) of the Year 2017

The secret to Mullineux's Straw Wine is harvesting Chenin grapes at normal ripeness levels to capture a healthy acidity.  The grapes are dried outside in the shade until they are half raisined, concentrating flavours, acidity and sugar into a super intense, but balanced treat. Fermentation is in old French barrels with indigenous yeasts and can last up to a year.  The wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined.
 
Tasting Notes:
 
Deep golden straw in colour, with a rich, viscous appearance. The nose and palate is a complex, enticing blend of dried peaches, apricots and marmalade, with savoury, nutty aromas of almonds, marzipan and honey. The intense mouth-feel is balanced by a clean, fresh and very long finish of dried apricots. The wine is best served chilled at 9 to 11 °C
