False Bay Syrah

The wine is fermented ‘old-school’ with wild yeast (partially whole-bunch) and raised in large wooden casks. A fine, spicy style…definitely more Syrah than Shiraz

The grapes for False Bay Old School Syrah stem primarily from two vineyards in Stellenbosch. The
attraction to these coastal, vineyards were the cooler temperatures and low yields of small, naturally
balanced and concentrated berries. Made by Waterkloof’s talented young Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard.
Balanced grapes are hand harvested, fermented spontaneously with wild yeast (a small portion wholebunch) and then raised in large wooden casks (or ‘foudre’ en Francais). No additions other than sulphur as a preservative. Grown, made and bottled in South Africa. Vegan friendly wine from sustainably
farmed vineyards.
Wild yeast fermentation, low yields and ageing in large French oak foudre are what defines this
savoury and appealing Syrah. Full yet elegant with bramble fruits and also some earth and meaty
aromas. The palate is structured and well balanced with fine tannins and a refreshing natural acidity.
Ideal with spicy dishes, red meats and rich Mediterranean dishes.

False Bay Vineyards is an independent company, owned by Waterkloof founder Paul Boutinot, 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.
