Circumstance Syrah Waterkloof, biodynamic Syrah, full bodied, well balanced and round, excellent balance, almost more northern Rhone than New World! Although the vines for this wine are still quite young, the concentration is excellent and the balance of tannins, fruit and body is already excellent. Scents of flowers, plums and Fynbos, the South African equivalent of Garrigues with a dry palate of plum and sour cherry. Lovey texture and a satisfyingly persistent finish, all in all, a delicious glass of Syrah.

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.
