Circumstance Cabernet Sauvignon Waterkloof Estate, biodynamic, Bordeaux style, elegant, juicy. This is a great little wine from Circumstance – their wines have always represented great value, and a great halfway between the old and new worlds. This wine has notes of blackcurrant, cassis, bell pepper and pencil shavings. The grapes are from a single, windswept, north-facing block 270-300m above and a mere 2 miles from the Atlantic, and malolactic fermentation takes place in mainly old barriques then, undergoes ageing for 20 months in the same vessels. No fining, just a light filtration. No additions other than sulphur. Vegan friendly, biodynamic wine. A fantastic wine for lovers of the grape, and for lovers of Claret!

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.
