With False Bay Wines' namesake being the most iconic bay in South Africa, one would expect outstanding wine. Luckily False Bay and its team has set out to create wine worthy of their name — without an outrageous price tag. As the sister brand to prominent South African winery Waterkloof, False Bay offers wine for discerning taste at a much more palatable price point. There is absolutely no discount in quality though. Growing their grapes from vineyards were previously under-appreciated, but balanced vines, False Bay routinely produces exceptional bottles of some of the world's favourite varietals. With three distinct lines available to choose from, including: False Bay, Revenant, and Peacock Wild Ferment, there is definitely a wine for you from this established South African winery. The Crystalline Chardonnay starts on vines grown in two different vineyards: the more coastal Stellenbosch, and inland Wellington — not too far from False Bay itself. This Chardonnay is made especially for those who scoff at the thought of enjoying a glass of Chard, which is just one of the reasons we enjoy it. We have no doubt that once you open a bottle, you too will be singing the praises of this South African beauty. Ready to be enjoyed any time before 2021, at a chilled 9 C.


This Chardonnay deserves a classic roast chicken dinner with creamy mashed potatoes and confit carrots. Looking to spice it up? Substitute for jerk chicken instead!
