We couldn’t be happier having received the news that Waterkloof Sauvignon Blanc 2022 just picked up its first coveted 5 STAR rating (95/100) in South Africa’s most respected wine publication Platter’s South African Wine Guide 2024.
Our newest Waterkloof wine, Waterkloof BOREAS was hot on its tails with an impressive debut of 94/100, whilst the consistently excellent Circle of Life White 2022 received 93/100 to go with its 94/100 from Decanter and 93/100 from Tim Atkin MW.
Ever since our first vintage in 2005, the cool, wind-ravaged, south-facing slopes of Waterkloof have always screamed out for Sauvignon Blanc. We have one particular little parcel though, which rises above the rest, providing Nadia Langenegger and her cellar team with truly exceptional grapes.
Whether you love Sauvignon Blanc or think that you don’t, we encourage you to decant a bottle of Waterkloof for an hour or two and serve it with something indulgent like langoustine or crayfish. No sauces – that’s in your glass. Simplicity being the ultimate luxury.
Finally, if you’d really like to test your patience and can get your hands on a case, you will find rich reward in following the journey of this wine over the course of a decade.
