White Wine - South Africa

Circumstance Sauvignon 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.

Circumstance Sauvignon Blanc is often described as The Pouilly Fumé of Stellenbosch. Stunning! The 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. Crushed laurel on the nose with more than a nuance of residual seaside salt. This has a big and textured palate with stone fruit and fennel hints – it is rich and minerally, showing even a slight rocky quality about it. As bracing as the wind through the vines at Waterkloof. Ideal with fresh oysters or fresh crayfish on the grill. Great with a goat's cheese too.
