An old school style Syrah made with wild yeast and fermented in Foudre. Ripe dark fruits with delicate tannins and a long ripe and rich finish. Dark plum in colour and flavour. Definitely a Homage to the French style of Syrah from Boutinot's ancestral lands.

First discovered by sailors confusing it for Table Bay to the north, False Bay has long been a haven for those navigating the treacherous Cape of Good Hope. The cool coastal breeze which sweeps off the Indian Ocean tempers the ripening process in this area of the cape, extends the growing season and produces expressive wines with more precise varietal characters and purity. The False Bay range was developed by Paul Boutinot, an Englishman from Manchester who not only established a highly successful importing company but also then invested in an incredible 250 hectare wine estate in South Africa. He makes many cuvee at Waterkloof including the entry level False Bay range from fruit sourced from elsewhere in the region. As with all the reds in the False Bay range, native or wild yeasts were allowed to complete the fermentation process.
