The wild yeast Chenin Blanc from Peacock Ridge sometimes takes over 6 months to finish fermentation and over this time develops complex and intriguing aromas of garriguey herbs and local fynbos and a distinct note of oregano. On the palate you will find notes of wild honey and rich fruit. A full bodied white wine with partial fermentation in tanks and wood, ideal for creamy pasta dishes with mushrooms.

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.
