Mr. K The Strawman Vin de Paille 2005, 375ml (WA100) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Mr. K The Strawman Vin de Paille

375ml

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara
Producer: Mr. K (Kracher/Sine Qua Non)

WA100
Rated 100 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Even more remarkable is the 2005 Mr. K. Marsanne Vin de Paille The Strawman. One-hundred percent Marsanne from the Beckmen Vineyard, with remarkably low alcohol (7.5%), a whopping 392 grams of residual sugar per liter, and exceptional acidity (6.4 grams of acid per liter), this is one of the most singular sweet wines I have ever tasted. It rivals the great 2000 Suey that was made from Roussanne and ended up with 241 grams of residual sugar. The individualistic, prodigious sweet wines are the products of meticulous attention to detail, obsessive harvesting requirements, and amazing vinifications and upbringings. They are unbelievable elixirs, and this one is as complex and intense as any sweet wine made in the world. It is a fitting tribute to the genius of both Manfred Krankl and his late partner, Luis Kracher.`
