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.
Waterkloof Circumstance Seriously Cool Cinsault 2017
Sourced from 40 and 50 year old bush vines on the Heldeberg’s breezy maritime slopes. Here’s a seaside Cinsault of real character defined by the soils from which it drinks. A hardy variety that thrives on the challenges of the Southern Atlantic setting, Seriously Cool Cinsault is a fine and friendly expression of the Cape’s most under-rated variety. Bright fresh cherry fruits on the nose with a savoury, fynbos finesse. On the palate it has a cranberry freshness and texture with taut acidity and tremendous length. Seriously, it does benefit being cooled to the right temperature (10-12 degrees).
