An independent company, 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 False Bay Crystalline Chardonnay come from a single coastal vineyard in Stellenbosch which gives lower yields and smaller berries which maintain their own natural acidity. Balanced grapes are hand harvested, fermented spontaneously with wild yeast in stainless steel tanks and then left on lees for a minimum of six months before bottling. No additions other than sulphur as a preservative. This is a serious, unoaked, textural Chardonnay with great focus and poise. Classy, with flinty minerality and great purity and restraint. Extended time on the lees adds nutty and toasty notes. Intense yet delicate right through to the finish. Serve with roast chicken, pasta and creamy sauce or grilled tiger prawns.

Tasting Note:
