Other Info:
Founded by Paul Boutinot in 2004, Waterkloof is a family-owned, organic, biodynamic and WWF Biodiversity Champion farm perched high up on the windswept Schapenberg, overlooking False Bay and The Atlantic Ocean. Living soils, naturally low yields and a long growing season help provide talented young Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard with naturally balanced grapes that are imbued with a truly defining sense of origin. Those grapes are then transformed into wine with a minimum of intervention. The resulting wines are fine, inimitable and best enjoyed with food.

The ultimate, inimitable expression of Sauvignon Blanc from the unique terroir of Waterkloof. A steely and mineral wine with great purity, restraint and elegance. The palate is layered with masses of fine texture and a balanced acidity, ending with a lingering minerality. This is a hugely serious wine with real pedigree and amongst one of the finest examples of South Africa's huge potential with this variety.

'Super-intense fruit here but it is lemon and fresh herbs, nothing like gooseberry or passionfruit. Subtle but intense. On the palate, stony elegance and concentration without effort. Almost a little spicy on the long finish.' - Julia Harding,

"First vintage made by Nadia Barnard. Whole bunch pressed, wild ferment. Multi-dimensional nose - instantly more interesting than the fruit-drenched model of Marlborough. Has distinctive green citrus fruit on the palate, but plenty of smokiness (but not in a Cape rubber way!) on the palate. Distinguished. 16.5 Points" Richard Hemming,

"Ripe, rich pear and peach notes as well as lively grapefruit freshness. There's a rich texture and mouthfeel to this wine, which is fruity, broad and alive with lovely presence and keen acidity offsetting the richness. Impressive stuff. 92/100" Jamie Goode,
