Neal Martin (formerly of The Wine Advocate and now of Vinous) recently released his comprehensive report on South African wine and we were ecstatic to read some impressive reviews for our naturally crafted, yet affordable False Bay range.
Special mention must go to our False Bay Slow Chenin Blanc 2017 which received a glowing review and score of 91 points, making it one of only two wines retailing for under $15 in the US to receive a score of 91 or above. But enough of the numbers, here’s what Neal had to say about the wine:
FALSE BAY SLOW CHENIN BLANC 2017
The 2017 False Bay Slow Chenin Blanc has an upfront yellow plum, honeysuckle and broom bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry and slightly waxy in texture. The finish shows wonderful varietal expression, featuring hints of marzipan, crushed almond and fennel. Excellent. 91 POINTS
