In a nutshell: A biodynamic, clean and rounded South African white.
The lowdown: A blend of mainly Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc with some Chardonnay and Semillon and made with a gentle hand as naturally as possible. Only 97 barrels of it were made from very low yielding vineyards. There is a softness to the texture but with a tight mineral core. Fruit flavours of lime, grapefruit and peach are complemented by richer tropical notes.
When to drink: For food matching try with sashimi of tuna, red snapper or the like.
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.
