Old bush vines give rise to a balanced tannin line and elevated length. This wine is not overtly fruity. A combination of strawberry, spices and a slight earthy note can be appreciated on the nose. Soft tannins on the mouth are complemented by elegant fruit aromas. Delicious served slightly cool.
Established by Paul Boutinot, False Bay Vineyards is a company that has grown out of many years of involvement in South Africa, which began at a time when their wines and potential was just being recognised. With knowledge and respect within the South African wine industry, Paul Boutinot has been able to source top quality grapes for the False Bay range. First discovered by sailors confusing it for Table Bay to the north, 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 tempers 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.
