Paulina’s Reserve Chenin Blanc
Decomposed granite soils host these low yielding 22-year-old vines that crop 8 tonnes / ha.
Dominant pineapple, peach and ripe pear aromas with notes of spicy oak. A rich mouth-filling wine with good structure and a long finish of dried fruit, white flowers and subtle minerality.
Enjoy with crayfish, roast pork or liver pâte on toasted ciabatta.
Harvesting & Fermentation:
Hand-picked into small baskets in the early morning at 22.8˚ Balling.
Fermented at 12˚C for a period of 30 days using naturally occurring yeasts. The wine was left on its primary lees for 6 months ensuring the full and creamy mouthfeel. 100% of the wine was barrel fermented and left to age for 10 months in a new oak Foudre and small French oak casks. No sulphur additions were made during or after fermentation, only at bottling.
Ready for your enjoyment, but with the naturally high acidity this wine will cellar well until 2020.
