Other Info:
The Waterkloof estate was founded in 2004, ending Paul Boutinot's (of the epynomous importing business based in Gatley, Manchester!) 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 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 Biodynamic by Demeter in 2015, very quickly after deciding to pursue natural farming, 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

Circumstance Sauvignon Blanc Waterkloof, biodynamic wine, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, Pouilly Fume style wine from Stellenbosch. They call this lovely South African Sauvignon, the Pouilly Fume of Stellenbosch! Delicious crispy wine with steely minerality, notes of stone fruit and fennel. Much more Loire than many Cape Sauvignon Blanc and all the better for it!
