Grapes for the Paul Wallace Reflection Chardonnay 2021 were harvested on 25 February 2021 from a Chardonnay vineyard (Clone CY95) planted on Bokkeveld shale soils. Hand-picked into lug boxes before vinification takes place, grapes were whole-bunch pressed and the juice taken to Burgundian oak barrels where it underwent fermentation. There is a 20% new oak contribution and a mixture of 500-litre and 300-litre barrels were used for maturation. Malolactic fermentation was limited to 30%. After 10 months in wood, the barrels were blended, and the wine bottled on 12th February 2022. 2,535 bottles were produced. Residual sugar: 1.8 g/l. Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: The Reflection Chardonnay leads with prominent notes of lemon and lime when young, evolving into passion fruit, brioche and with a refined minerality and length.

Palate: A fruit-forward entry onto the palate where citrus notes and a delicate oaky sweetness combine with the underlying minerality to produce a wine with good breadth, length and mouthfeel.

Finish: Refreshing acidity with lingering notes of honeycomb, lemon peel and a hint of brioche.
