Tasting Notes

A variety of yellow fruits and limes can be picked up on the nose with a touch of cumin. The palate shows a fresh acidity with a lingering mouth feel- an effortlessly balanced wine.

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

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 and whole-bunch pressed in their modern basket press to extract the juice in the gentlest way.

In the winery

The juice is then settled naturally for 24 hours without enzymes, after which it is racked from the settling tank into 600-litre barrels, concrete eggs and a stainless-steel tank. The naturally occurring yeasts or “wild yeasts” are allowed to start the fermentation process. This leads to a much longer fermentation process with a slow release of aromas and a more structured palate. Fermentation took between one and six months to complete, after which the wine was blended and left on the gross lees for a further six months until bottling with no stirring of the lees taking place. They do not add any acid, enzymes or commercial yeast 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.

Food Recommendations

A really versatile wine that will go with a variety of dishes. The wine can cut through creamy chicken dishes, belly of pork or fried fish and squid. Equally, one can enjoy it with the clean flavours of ceviche, sashimi or simply grilled sea bass.
