Here are a few Waterkloof highlights:
“Waterkloof is a clear symbol of what has happened in South Africa in the 20 years I have travelled down here.”
False Bay Chenin Blanc 2014 – “Stone and marshland and some anise in the aromatics, stone-fruits in taste. Swartland-grapes in this wine. Good fullness. Suits lots of foods, finger-foods, summer wine. And at that price Very good.”
Circumstance Sauvignon Blanc 2014 – “A price in the league of Sancerre. Bit in the same taste-direction too with gooseberry and blackcurrants, some tropical fruits and a clear, citrusy under-tone. Fine freshness and fullness. All round wine.”
Circle of Life White 2012 – “Wow, this is good stuff! Fat and some spices, very concentrated fruit, at the same time noble. Made from a special mix of sauvignon blanc, chenin blanc and chardonnay. The fruit is seamless with creamy, honey- and peachlike taste and a core of freshness and minerality.”
