Tasting Notes

This wine is complex, stylish and elegant. Aromas of dark chocolate, pencil shavings and black currant are prominent on the nose. The tannins are soft but still give a lovely structure on the palate.

Producer details

False Bay Vineyards aims to make 'real' wine affordable. These are sustainable certified wines bottled in South Africa and naturally crafted from mature and often old vineyards that, crucially, are naturally in balance. This means that, unusually at the price, the grapes from these coastal gems can be transformed into wine with wild yeast and an absolute minimum of intervention.

In the vineyard

The Revenant Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are situated in the cooler, coastal areas of Stellenbosch overlooking False Bay. The vines are between 15 and 45 years old. These mature and old vines grown on cooler coastal sites give up elegant, refined wine with notable structure and the potential to age gracefully.

In the winery

All grapes are hand-picked to ensure that only the finest berries are used. They harvest according to taste (the traditional way) and spend most of their time in the vineyards to see how the flavours develop. The grapes are then sorted by hand, de-stemmed and slowly fermented, using the natural yeast from the vineyard. The wine was punched down or pumped over just once or twice a day to avoid over extraction. The Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in older 225L, 600L barrels as well as 9000l foudre for a total of 36 months. They do not add any acid, enzymes, commercial yeast or powdered tannins during the winemaking process, nor do they fine the wine, with only a light filtration and a small addition of sulphur added as a preservative prior to bottling.
