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.
Peacock Wild Ferment Syrah is a very classy, restrained style of cool, coastal Cape Syrah. Bright red and sour cherries, plums as well as earthy dusty notes and sweet spice on the nose. The palate has lots of creamy fruit, with firm food tannins and a lovely sappy finish. Ripe, savoury flavours which are balanced by the fresh acidity. Enjoy with venison or other game casserole. 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.
