Tasting Notes

Fabulous seaside Sauvignon. Fresh and zesty with grassy and dry bay leaf aromatics, Fynbos (which surrounds the vineyards), mineral notes, with hints of richness. This is a restrained Sauvignon Blanc with a palate that has lots of minerality and citrus with just a touch of green pepper and grass.

Producer details

False Bay has long been a haven for those navigating the treacherous Cape of Good Hope. The cool coastal breeze which sweeps off the Indian Ocean temper the ripening process, extend the growing season and produce expressive wines with more precise varietal characters and purity. These lifted aromas make the wines accessible, perfectly balanced and full flavoured.

In the vineyard

The meticulously selected sites include the Perdeberg, Stellenbosch and Schapenberg regions which impart delicious flavours and crisp natural acidity to the wine. These vineyards allow for slower ripening, a greater natural concentration of flavours and a long finish. Depending on the slopes and the fertility of the soils in these areas, flavour profiles can range from the more tropical gooseberry and lychee to racy green pepper, or even herbaceous asparagus. Although further from the coast, the whole of Table Bay is visible from the Perdeberg vineyard used. Made by Waterkloof's talented young Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard. From the 2015 vintage they upgraded the fruit source for this wine to the more coastal hills of Stellenbosch. This windswept Sauvignon Blanc is not concocted from over-croppped grapes, nor pumped up on clever winemaking additives. This authentic wine comes from cool, windswept, ocean-facing vineyards. These gems give up meagre yields of small berries, imbued with their own natural acidity and intensity. Balanced grapes are hand harvested, then a portion of the juice is fermented spontaneously with wild yeast and the rest is inocculated. The wine spends a minimum of 5 months on lees before bottling. No additions other than sulphur as a preservative. Grown, made and bottled in South Africa. Vegan friendly wine. False Bay - Real Wine
