FB Shiraz 2011

The finely balanced False Bay Chenin Blanc 2011 stems from humble bush vine vineyards in the Swartland which have over time found their natural balance. It is a sublime melange of a fresh, fruity and more serious, age-worthy style Chenin blanc.


Glowing with a straw yellow tinge, it features gentle aromas of apple and tropical fruit while the bright acidity helps to carry the generous mouth feel. Natural, wild yeast fermentation lends great complexity and an impressive length. It is a versatile wine well suited to partner seafood, risotto or roast chicken. 

After intensive viticulture research, vineyards in the Stellenbosch and Swartland regions clinched the deal for the False Bay Shiraz 2011. These vineyard sites produce wines with notable elegance and freshness, allied to a fine texture and their deep red soils provide moisture and nutrients which lend this Shiraz its supple, spicy characters.
