False Bay Slow Chenin


15 item(s) in stock

Not fermented with fast-acting or commercially selected yeast. The grapes here do not take just three weeks to get from vineyard to bottle. Instead its crafted in the wild way, old-vine fruit, fermented with wild yeast- magic like this takes at least six months.

Tasting Notes

Wild yeast fermentation is key to this benchmark Chenin Blanc. The long wild yeast ferment provides bready aromas and additional complexity to the wine. Dried herbaceous notes, including fennel and aniseed from the nearby Fynbos, dominate the nose, followed by a creamy lemon character. The palate is reminiscent of the nose, with great textural complexity, attributable to the long, slow wild yeast fermentation.
