False Bay ‘Bush Vine’ Pinotage

£9.24
An independent company, 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

"Made from South Africa’s flagship grape variety, the Pinotage grapes stem from a single vineyard of unirrigated bush vines in Stellenbosch. The attraction to this mature, coastal, bush vine vineyard were the cooler temperatures and small, naturally balanced and concentrated berries. Balanced grapes are hand harvested, fermented spontaneously with wild yeast and then raised in large wooden casks (or 'foudre' en Francais). The resulting wine therefore, is perhaps more 'Pino' than 'Tage'. A richly-fruited, yet savoury and satisfying Pinotage. Plummy aromas with a faint hit of barbecued meat. The palate is full and rich with slightly rustic yet moreish tannins and an impressively long finish. Perfect with pork belly dishes or barbecued meats, boerwurst, game or good, old fashioned sausage and mash."
