Waterkloof Estate, perched on the slopes of the Schapenberg, unlocks nature’s true potential with biodynamic farming practices and classically elegant wines
Circumstance #CapeCoral Mourvèdre: Block 29
This 0.70 hectare block of Mourvèdre was planted in 2015 and is farmed organically and biodynamically. Hand picked, hand sorted, gently pressed, gravity fed and spontaneous natural fermentation.
Block 18A is a 1.5ha low yielding, bush-vine block of organic #CheninBlanc. It’s situated 5km from the Atlantic Ocean, which ensures a cooler & longer growing season. These grapes become our #Circumstance Chenin Blanc!

Today we began harvesting Block 8, home to 1.5 hectares of our flagship #Waterkloof #SauvignonBlanc.
Here, the blustery southeaster regularly churns up the vineyard. This results in a very low yield of just 2 tonnes/ha, with intense flavours and flinty minerality!
