Peacock Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon is made with wild yeast from excellent vineyard sites in the Helderberg. Although not an organic wine as such, Waterkloof only source fruit from growers who operate sound ecological practise and then the wine is made as naturally as possible. It is full but fresh and not too tannic or heavy with cassis and berry aromas and some choco/vanilla notes from the oak. A lovely glass of Cabernet that won’t break the bank.

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.

    Was pleasantly surprised at how smooth and delicious this wine was – went down rather too quickly.

    Well I was surprised and not in a nice way. Thin and acidic and not at all the lovely fruity cab sav I’m used to. Can you have a bad bottle with a screw cap top?! Gets 2 stars because I can remember what it should be like!

    Not sure on that one Rob, we will have to taste it and see, the wines are generally really good and full, perhaps, you just had a dodgy bottle. Rob
