Paul Wallace CrackerJack 2021 is produced from a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec and 13% Cabernet Franc. The grapes all originate for the Elgin region, a high-lying basin surrounded by mountain ranges. The Malbec and Cabernet Franc grapes hail from Paul and Nicky’s farm, Wallovale Vineyards, whilst the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were sourced from another Elgin grape producer with whom Paul has a direct involvement. Each parcel of grapes was harvested at its own optimum ripeness and vinified separately. Post fermentation maceration the wine was left on the skins for 14 days. Thereafter each wine was transferred to barrel where they completed malolactic fermentation. The wines spent 18 months in 225-litre French oak barriques prior to blending. The wine received a light filtration before bottling on 7th December 2022. 2,950 bottles were produced. Residual sugar: 1.3 g/l. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Paul and Nicky Wallace purchased their 25-hectare farm in September 2003 and immediately set out to create their own little piece of heaven. Paul is a viticultural consultant and here at last he could practise what he has advised and encouraged other farmers to do in their vineyards. It has long been Paul's belief that the cool-climate region of Elgin, previously best known for its apples and pears, is one of the most exciting developing wine regions within the South African wine industry and indeed internationally.
