White Wine - South Africa

Circumstance Chenin Blanc

£15.40
Founded in 2004, Waterkloof is a family-owned farm using organic practices, perched high up on the windswept Schapenberg, overlooking False Bay and The Atlantic Ocean. Living soils and a natural approach to winemaking means that each of the single-varietal wines in the Circumstance range is truly defined by the circumstances influencing the chosen varietal and vineyard blocks, including: soil, aspect, altitude and vintage. These factors combine to produce low yields, balanced grapes and wines with a true sense of place.

The Chenin Blanc grapes are sourced from three windswept, south-facing blocks a mere 2 miles from The Atlantic, where the vines are 20 years old. Waterkloof follow a traditional, minimalistic approach in their cellar which means interfering as little as possible with the winemaking process. This allows the flavours prevalent in that specific vineyard to ultimately express themselves in the wine. The nose is enormously redolent of Manuka honey and yellow pollen. The palate is soft and creamy with citrus and a wonderful textural minerality, waxy lanolin notes and honey. Lovely palate weight and Vouvray-like body supports further complexity and decadence. A great partner with fish or try it with an oyster mushroom, rocket salad.
