This white dessert wine is a delight to the senses, offering an exceptional balance between sweetness and acidity results in a complex flavor profile that will leave a lasting impression. The aromatics are characterized by apple and honeysuckle, which blend seamlessly with bright flavors of kumquat, tangerine, and lemon curd. The finish is long and satisfying, featuring bright citrus marmalade that lingers on the palate. This wine is perfect as a dessert wine or enjoyed on its own as a special treat.


Domaine Artefact, San Diego County (California) Estate Vin de Paille 2016: Winemaker Mark Robinson names this wine for the process, where select fruit clusters are dried on a bed of straw to concentrate sugars without sacrificing acidity. A blend of Grenache Blanc and Viognier from his Highland Valley estate, it features dried apricot, peach, orange blossom, marzipan and spice on a viscous palate tempered with bright acid. The finish is clean and invites you back for more. A fine solo dessert glass. 92 Rich Cook Dec 26, 2017
