Tasting Notes
     
The 2023 Paul Wallace Little Flirt Sauvignon Blanc is our tenth vintage. As the name suggests she is little charmer and somewhat flirtatious.

 

Sourced from the highest lying terraces, traversing the feature conical hill on our farm, the west, south and east facing slopes each contribute to a diversity of flavours, which make this wine so appealing.

 

Fruit driven nose led by wafts of white pear, granadilla and gooseberry softened by kiwi fruit, golden delicious apples and hints of lime. This medley of tropical fruits extends onto the palate where it is furtherenhanced by an underlying salinity. The mouthfeel captures the purity of Elginís fruit, resulting in a layered, well-balanced wine with good length. Delightful while 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 oysters, mussels in a creamy white wine sauce, kingklip or salmon. The Little Flirt will compliment roast chicken or pork chops with 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!

Released for sale July 2023.
