Peacock Wild Ferment Cabernet Sauvignon

A juicy and approachable Cab with hints of leafy cassis, ripe dark fruit characters and notes of star anise on the nose. The palate has length and elegance ending rich yet bright with firm but fine tannins.

The grapes for Peacock Wild Ferment Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from the coolest, most coastal areas of Stellenbosch: The Helderberg and Schapenberg. This is the home to many of South Africa’s greatest Cabernet Sauvignons. In this cooler and more windswept area the variety produces lower yields and has a longer ripening time, ensuring balanced flavours and elegant tannins in the finished wine. The Helderberg and Schapenberg are also known for the large expanses of indigenous flora (fynbos and proteas) and fauna such as caracal, bat eared foxes, leopards and of course, peacocks. In fact, four of South Africa’s twenty WWF Biodiversity & Wine Initiative Champions (which includes Waterkloof amongest their number) are located on the Schapenberg and Helderberg alone. In addition to sourcing fruit from neighbouring vineyards, a portion of wine from Waterkloof’s biodymamic vineyard is used in the Peacock Wild Ferment range. Grapes are hand-picked, de-stemmed, sorted and fermented spontaneously with wild yeast in open top wooden fermenters. Ageing takes place in old French oak barrels before a light filtration and then bottling. No additons other than sulphur. Vegan friendly wine.

A great combination for a variety dishes including pastas, red meat based dishes and hard cheeses.

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.
