Paulina’s Reserve Chenin Blanc

2012 Vintage

Decomposed granite soils host these low yielding crops of 8 tonnes/ha on 17 year old vines.

Harvesting & Fermentation:

Hand-picked into small baskets in the early morning at 23.3 balling.

Fermented at 12 degrees C for a period of 27 days using naturally occurring yeasts. The wine was left on its primary lees for 6 months ensuring the full creamy mouth feel. 100% of the wine was barrel fermented in 80% new oak and left to age for 6 months in an oak Foudre and small French oak casks. No sulphur additions were made during or after fermentation, only at bottling.

Tasting Note:

Dominant 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.

Maturation Potential:

Ready to be enjoyed but with the naturally high acidity this wine will cellar well until 2017.

Food Pairing:

Crayfish, roast Pork, liver pate on toasted ciabatta

Alc: 14.1%

Sugar: 2.7 g/l

TA: 6.3 g/l

pH: 3.25
