Circumstance Sauvignon Blanc Waterkloof, biodynamic wine, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, Pouilly Fume style wine from Stellenbosch. They call this lovely South African Sauvignon, the Pouilly Fume of Stellenbosch! Delicious crispy wine with steely minerality, notes of stone fruit and fennel. Much more Loire than many Cape Sauvignon Blanc and all the better for it!

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 West 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 Mr Boutinot's understanding of wine and wine drinkers.

  1. How good is this wine?

    Scott Llewellyn13/04/2020

    We were introduced to this wine during a tasting and it’s remained a favourite to order whenever we get the chance. Rare to find it in the UK, so booked through Buon Vino first time and now again as we enjoyed great service and prompt delivery

  2. How good is this wine?


    SB usually bores me - not in this case. Not fining and filtering makes such a difference, and maybe a parcel or two in here went through malo?

    Anyway, the additional richness of body and softer fruit complements the lemon peel and lime and high acidity beautifully.
