Rickety Bridge Paulina's Reserve Semillon 2017
Lime and apple aromas layered with nuances of honeyed beeswax. The full, rich palate of honey and citrus is perfectly balanced with well integrated oak notes, minerality and a delightful lingering creamy finish.

Grapes are harvested from 28-year-old vines grown in sandy Tukulu soils on the banks of Franschhoek River. Very low yielding at 4.5 tonnes / ha. Rickety Bridge Semillon grapes were hand harvested at 23.1˚ Balling into small crates.
Fermentation took place in the small French oak barrels, 15% new and 85% older barrels using a naturally occurring yeast. The must was fermented between 14 - 17˚C and the lees was stirred up daily for two months and then once every two weeks for the next 3 months thereafter. The wine was then left to age for a total of 11 months in barrel.
Ready for your enjoyment, the wine has great ageing potential for up to at least 2025.
Red Thai chicken curry, roast gammon, smoked salmon, shellfish, and Asian cuisine. A very versatile varietal which can be paired with many dishes.
