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.
