Mr. K The Strawman Vin de Paille 2003, 375ml (WA97) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Mr. K The Strawman Vin de Paille

375ml

Vintage: 2003
Region: US
Appellation: Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara

WA97
Rated 97 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2003 Mr. K. The Strawman, a 100% Semillon vin de pays, boasts ... get this ... 435 grams of residual sugar per liter and 9.2 grams of acidity per liter. The grapes were picked in mid-September and then air-dried until early November (approximately 50 days) before fermentation began. A monumental wine of great intensity, richness, aromatic complexity, and a honeyed sweetness and balance that are almost beyond belief. Frankly, I don`t know how elixirs such as this can be made, but they demand unreal patience as well as meticulous attention to detail in both the vineyard and the winery. Like all SQN wines, what one confronts is brilliant singularity and individuality that provide us - mere mortals - the opportunity to watch and experience a genius play with our senses of pleasure and intellect. Whether we ever fully comprehend them is irrelevant - it is the challenge and fun of the quest that is damn fun!`
