Peacock Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc

A crisp, elegant wine with grapefruit, lemon and mango flavours whose mineral core lifts the
concentrated, gently honeyed fruit on the palate. A ripe, yet restrained and taut style of Sauvignon.

The grapes for Peacock Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc are sourced from the coolest, most coastal
area of Stellenbosch: The Schapenberg. In this cooler and more windswept area the variety produces
lower yields and has a longer ripening time, ensuring balanced flavours, fine poise and a long finish.
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
amongst their number) are located on the Schapenberg and Helderberg alone. In addition to sourcing
fruit from neighbouring vineyards, there is also a portion of wine from Waterkloof’s biodynamic
vineyard used in the Peacock Wild Ferment range. Made by Waterkloof’s talented young Cellarmaster
Nadia Barnard. Low yielding vines from Schapenberg sauvignon blanc vineyards are hand harvested.
Grapes are then whole-bunch pressed in a horizontal basket press for only the finest juice.
Fermentation takes place spontaneously with wild yeast and the wine then spends an extended period
on the lees before bottling. No additions other than sulphur. Vegan friendly wine.

Great with barbecued white fish, try sea bass with fresh root ginger, or gently spiced Thai 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.
