False Bay, Chenin Blanc, Western Cape, 2021

From dry-farmed, bush vines, mainly in the Paardeberg and Riebeek Valley, slowly fermented, using only wild yeasts. Lightly honeyed scent. This is richly textured, weighty, offering a generous, well-flavoured heart of white peach and crisp pineapple. Now-2024

False Bay is the second label of Waterkloof, an estate with a spectacular contemporary winery set on a bluff high above Somerset West. The wines are well crafted, colourfully labelled, varietal wines, bottled under screwcap, in part sourced from fruit from Waterkloof, but also from parcels of well-sited vines all over the Coastal Region.

Very interesting selection of wines with super service.
