False Bay wines was founded by Paul Boutinot in 1994 with the aim of making "real wine affordable". Named after the gigantic bay on the Western Cape of South Africa, this Chenin Blanc is made from grapes from old bush vines in The Swartland and Stellenbosch regions. The old vines help the grapes to stay relatively acidic before they are harvested by hand and then left to ferment, aided by wild yeast from the air around.
