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 grapes for Peacock Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc are sourced from the coolest, most coastal area of Stellenbosch: The Schapenberg. In this cooler and more windswept area the variety produces lower yields and has a longer ripening time, ensuring balanced flavours, fine poise and a long finish. There is also the judiciously genetic addition of some Waterkloof Estate fruit. A crisp, yet elegant wine with green and lemon flavours. The mineral core lifts the concentrated fruit on the palate. Great with barbecued white fish, try sea bass with fresh root ginger, or gently spiced Thai dishes. 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.
