False Bay Slow Chenin Blanc 2022
Slow Chenin Blanc is not fermented with fast-acting, or aroma ‘enhancing’ commercially selected yeast. The grapes do not take three weeks to get from vineyard to bottle. It is crafted the wild way – old vine fruit, fermented with wild yeast found naturally on the grapes…not in a packet. This magical transformation takes at least six months. At False Bay Vineyards we make slow wine.
A complex Chenin Blanc that I would like to describe as fresh, soft and elegant. The nose is welcoming with prominent hints of stone fruits such as white pears and apricots and also showing hints of honey. The taste is round and smooth, finishing with slight acids that give the wine a beautiful structure and length.
