An independent company, owned by Waterkloof founder Paul Boutinot, 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. The finest cabernets from South Africa hail from coastal Stellenbosch and ally power with elegance and freshness. That is the objective with Peacock Wild Ferment Cabernet Sauvignon.
A very drinkable Cab with hints of leafy cassis, juicy dark fruit characters and notes of star anise. The palate has length and elegance ending rich yet bright on the palate. A great combination for many dishes including pastas and red meat based dishes. It would pair well with game dish and roasted vegetables. False Bay Vineyards is proud to be a WWF (World Wildlife Fund) Biodiversity Champion and certified by WIETA (Wine and Agricultural Ethical Trade Association). All of their wines are Vegan friendly.
