Plum coloured. High-toned scent of berries. Bittersweet raspberry and bilberry fruit, bold and juicy, with just a smidge of tannin which makes this food-friendly, a good accompaniment to roast pork or the barbecue. This is quite a light and graceful Pinotage. Now-2021


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.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
