Circle of Life White Waterkloof biodynamic wine, Chenin blend, fresh fruits, creamy texture, layers of herbs and long finish, very good value. Citrus and lemon flavours, with slight peachy notes on the nose. A tight mineral core and creamy middle pallet allows for great complexity and a persistent finish. This is the personal project and passion of Paul Boutinot the eponymous wine importer. Listening to him talk about his vineyards and wines, it is hard not to be enthused and on tasting the wines, I was certainly very impressed. This is beautiful wine, made from a stunning wine project that is about to lose all the mechanisation in the vineyard to become totally natural. they are even going to use horses instead of tractors. It is totally bio-dynamic and they produce their own organic fertilisers. The winery is state of the art and the architecture of the building award winning. The restaurant is amongst the best in Stellenbosch and in general everything about this place is world class. Well the wines are excellent and the White in particular is a superb wine for white meat or firm fish dishes, leesy, characterful and fabulously elegant.

WATERKLOOF estate was founded in 2004, ending Paul Boutinot’s 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 by Demeter in 2015, 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.
