Named after Paul’s wife, Nicky, who is partial to a Noble to round off 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.  An invigorating fruity acid adds backbone and structure to this third release of the Paul Wallace “The Nix” Noble Late Harvest.

Cultivar: Sauvignon Blanc

Alcohol 12.0% Vol

Total acid 8.5 g/l

pH 3.05

Residual sugar 126.8 g/l

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were naturally infected with the Botrytis cinerea fungus and harvested at 32.6° balling

Whole bunch pressed, fermented cold followed by maturation in 3rd and 4th fill French oak barriques for a period of 6 months in order to extract a hint of nuttiness.  The wine was filtered and bottled with minimal intervention to best maintain its aromatic profile.

Food Pairing

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.
