This windswept Sauvignon Blanc is not concocted from over-croppped grapes, nor pumped up on clever winemaking additives. This authentic wine comes from cool, windswept, ocean-facing vineyards in Stellenbosch. These gems give up meagre yields and small berries, which are hand-harvested to ensure natural intensity and cutting acidity is preserved. Fresh and zesty with grassy and dry bay leaf aromatics, Fynbos (which surrounds the vineyards), mineral notes, with hints of citrussy richness. This is a restrained Sauvignon Blanc with a palate that has lots of minerality and citrus with just a touch of green pepper and grass. Fabulous seaside Sauvignon.

False Bay Vineyards, South Africa
False Bay 'Slow' Chenin Blanc
Grown, made and bottled in South Africa. It is crafted the wild way – old vine fruit from Stellenbosch and Swartland, fermented with wild yeast found naturally on the grapes…not in a packet. This magical transformation takes at least six months.
The long wild-yeast ferment provides bready aromas and additional complexity to the wine. Dried herbaceous notes, including fennel and aniseed from the nearby fynbos, dominate the nose, followed by a creamy lemon character. The palate is reminiscent of the nose, with great textural complexity, attributable to the long, slow wild yeast fermentation.
A versatile wine equally well suited to partner lobster and other seafood, risotto or herb roast chicken. Can also handle spice very well.
