Why do we love this wine?

False Bay’s chenin blanc is sustainably farmed, from old vines, and made with minimal intervention. The website proudly proclaims that, far from going vine to bottle in three weeks via packet-bought yeast, this delight underwent a snail-paced six month fermentation using only natural, wild yeast. The results is a lovely, characterful wine. Look to find yellow plums and honeysuckle, with hints of marzipan, crushed almond and fennel. It’s absurdly food-friendly, and makes for a delightful aperitif. The ‘slow food’ movement is in full swing, why not ‘slow wine’?

This wine is part of our Women in Wine collection. We are committed to ALWAYS having wines available that are made by women. We already support so many women in the industry but we want to make this much more transparent and visible for our mofos. We want to make a real and lasting impact in an industry that is sadly still dominated by men. And this is the first step. Here’s to our Women in Wine!
