Details

Circumstance Cape Coral Rose, biodynamic Rose, 100% Mourvedre, dry, the style of Provence from South Africa, lightly savoury, deliciously fresh. Beautiful freshness created from natural production at the recently certified biodynamic Waterkloof estate in the Helderberg region of the western cape. Cape Coral Rose offers fantastic value for a naturally made Rose with real quality and depth, think Chateau de Pibarnon from Bandol and you are some of the way there, but a third of the price! Delicious dry Rose for summer drinking.




The Waterkloof estate was founded in 2004, ending Paul Boutinot’s (of the epynomous importing business based in Gatley, Manchester!) persistent and uncompromising 10 year search for a vineyard site with the potential to produce truly fine wine with a defining sense of origin. Located on the south-facing slopes of Schapenberg Hill near Somerset in the Stellenbosch district of the Western Cape’s Coastal Region, Waterkloof shares its magnificent Atlantic views with free-roaming peacocks and other natural fauna and flora attracted to this haven. Certified Biodynamic by Demeter in 2015, very quickly after deciding to pursue natural farming, their vineyards are of only a few in the Cape to boast official biodynamic approval and status. The estate has 56 hectares under vine and Tim Atkin’s Cape Classification currently ranks Waterkloof as 5th Growth level. With production around 165,000 bottles per year, Waterkloof make honest wines from their unique biodynamic coastal site. Respect for nature, traditional wine making practices and minimal intervention are all key to their success. The wines have a lovely approachable drinkability, showing that biodynamic doesn't mean weird and funky. The wines please most palates but retain their own uniqueness and style, a testament to My Boutinot's understanding of wine and wine drinkers.
