False Bay Chardonnay
- Robertson, Coastal Regions, South Africa
- False Bay Vineyards
A low yielding site in Robertson produces the 100% Chardonnay needed for this excellent wine. A tiny amount of oak but this wine is really about the bright mineral fruit and acidity.
Wild yeast fermentation, low yields and naturally balanced grapes inform this 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

An independent company, owned by Waterkloof founder Paul Boutinot, 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.
