Paul Wallace Wines
  • (20)

Paul and Nicky Wallace purchased their 25 hectare farm in 2003 and immediately set out to create their own little piece of heaven. As a viticultural consultant Paul has on occasion been described as something of a viticultural maverick so now he has been able to put into practice what he preaches. The farm has been converted from apples to wine grapes with plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Malbec and more recently Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc. The Paul Wallace range of wines was launched in 2013 and is available for tasting from their charming tasting room on the farm. Paul and Nicky, together with a host of dogs, will welcome you on a Saturday (or by appointment on any other day) and regale you with the stories of their wine journey.

  • TA: 5.7 g/l

Winemaking and Tasting Notes:
  
Much like the dog the wine is dark in colour, well-muscled intense and full of character. The Black Dog Malbec displays an inky core with some bright garnet on the rim. An intriguing nose conjures up hints of blue berries, black berries, raspberries, brambles and rhubarb. The entry onto the palate is a satisfying mouthful of dark fruits and spice, with firm yet silky tannins, a hint of hazelnuts and some violets on the back palate. The Black Dog Malbec is a truly memorable wine which displays all the natural elegance we have come to expect from the Elgin region. 
   
The ideal accompaniment to red meat dishes, a tender steak or sit in front of a fire, sip slowly and dip into a bowl of pistachio nuts.

Paul Wallace 'Brave Heart' Pinot Noir 2015

  • Wine of Origin: Elgin
  • Harvest Date: 10th February 2015

Analysis:

  • Alcohol: 14.38% (14.0% on label)
  • Residual Sugar: 2.6 g/l
  • pH: 3.41
  • TA: 6.4 g/l


Winemaking and Tasting Notes:
   
The 2014 Paul Wallace Brave Heart Pinot Noir is our third Vintage. The name is a tribute to William Wallace, a man of great principle and heart, who we would like to believe is one of our ancestors. It is also a play on the Pinot Noir cultivar’s nickname – the Heart Break grape. 
 
Pristine grapes (Clone PN115, Guyot pruned) selected from three different slopes on our farm Wallovale Vineyards, were vinified with much love and gentle attention by Gavin Patterson. 
 
The Brave Heart Pinot Noir proudly introduces itself with a bright garnet colour enticing you to explore it further. Fresh primary fruits, wafts of red cherries, strawberries and mulberries on the nose follow through onto a fruit driven palate. The purity of fruit is embellished by subtle oaking (17% new wood, 50% second fill, 33% third and fourth fill) and spicy undertones typical of the Elgin region.
 
Serve the Brave Heart with plum-glazed duck, roast turkey or a beautiful bit of salmon. It is recommended that in our hot summer months you serve this wine ever so lightly chilled.

Paul Wallace 'Little Flirt' Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Winemaking:

  • Wine of Origin: Elgin
  • Bottling Date: 20th June 2016

Analysis:

  • Alcohol: 13.7% (14.0% on label)
  • Residual Sugar: 4.6 g/l
  • pH: 3.23
  • TA: 6.1 g/l


Tasting Notes:
     
The 2016 Paul Wallace Little Flirt Sauvignon Blanc is our fourth vintage, released. As the name suggests she is little charmer and somewhat flirtatious.
  
Bright and appealing with prominent pear, litchi and kiwifruit on the nose. An explosion of fruit on the palate reveals grapefruit, tropical fruits and even a hint of golden delicious apples. The full mouthfeel captures the purity of Elgin’s fruit, resulting in a well-balanced wine with good length. Delightful young but is expected to show her pedigree and mature with stylish grace and aplomb with further time in the bottle. 
  
Guaranteed to charm and captivate, she will pair beautifully with summer salads, fresh Cape crayfish, and all manner of seafood. Match her with mussels, seared tuna, kingklip or salmon. The Little Flirt will compliment roast chicken or pork chops and apple sauce. For dessert serve her with apple crumble. She will certainly enhance your meal and even if sipped as an aperitif will flirt with your senses! 

Paul Wallace 'The Nix' Sauvignon Blanc Noble Late Harvest 2014

  • Wine of Origin: Elgin

Analysis:

  • Alcohol: 10.09% (10.0% on label)
  • Residual Sugar: 159 g/l
  • pH: 3.3
  • TA: 10.02 g/l

Winemaking:

The 2014 vintage was characterized by a weekly splash of rainfall, which made vineyard management particularly tricky. However if ever there was a year perfectly suited to the production of a Noble Late Harvest, this was it.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were naturally infected with the Botrytis cinerea fungus and harvested at 32.6 ° balling. Whole bunch pressed, fermented cold and then matured in 4th fill French oak barriques for a period of 9 months in order to extract a hint of nuttiness. The wine was filtered and bottled with minimal intervention to best maintain its aromatic profile. 

Tasting Notes:

Named after Paul’s wife, who is partial to a noble to round of a fine meal, this wine possesses both charm and backbone – two of Nix’s personal traits. It flaunts layers of dense apricot and tangerine fruits, with a hint of almond and star anise and a drizzle of honey. An invigorating fruity acid adds backbone and structure to this maiden release of the Paul Wallace "The Nix” Noble Late Harvest. 
 
Serve well chilled. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a cheese board or gooseberry cheesecake. Add a dash to your fruit salad or drizzle over your vanilla bean ice cream if you dare.

Paul Wallace 'Crackerjack' 2010

Winemaking:

  • Wine of Origin: Elgin
  • Harvest Date: 30th November 2011

Analysis:

  • Alcohol: 14.22% (14.0% on label)
  • Residual Sugar: 2.4 g/l
  • pH: 3.52
  • TA: 5.90 g/l

Winemaking Notes:
   
The 2010 vintage showcases all the finest attributes of a well put together Bordeaux-styled blend. The composition of the wine is 74% Cabernet Sauvignon; 14% Merlot and 12% Malbec.
 
The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes were sourced from two farms in the Elgin area and the Malbec grapes are grown on the lower lying north-facing slopes on our own farm, Wallovale Vineyards. The grapes were harvested and vinified individually by Martin Meinert in his Devon Crest Winery, Stellenbosch but the final blend put together after the wine had been matured for 26 months in 225lit French oak barriques was very much a team selection by Martin, Paul and Nicky.
 
Tasting Notes:


The first clue that this is an absolutely outstanding wine is the rich impenetrable purple colour. The nose excites with wafts of luxurious black fruits – blackberries, blackcurrants, dark chocolate and a hint of clove. A velvety smooth entry with superb fruit concentration will delight and transport you back to fond memories of decadent Black Forest Gateau enjoyed at the Mount Nelson Hotel. It is a classic blend, where the contributing varieties enhance and support one another. All in all it’s a Crackerjack of a wine. Enjoy!

Paul Wallace 'Black Dog' Malbec 2008

Winemaking:

The grapes were harvested in peak physiological condition and after destalking and a gentle crush received a three day cold soak.

Tasting Notes:

The 2008 Paul Wallace 'Black Dog' Malbec displays an intriguing nose: a combination of ripe summer mulberries with some tobacco and a surprising hint of delicate fynbos. An explosion of berries follows onto the palate coupled with hints of cake spice and black pepper with a satisfying finish. The Black Dog Malbec displays all the natural elegance we have come to expect from the Elgin region. Enjoy it with steaks, barbequed meat and pasta dishes.
