Waterkloof Circle of Life White
Tim Atkin MW 95 Points - South Africa Wine Report 2019
Waterkloof Circle of Life White - A wine that captures the true essence of Waterkloof's viticultural amphitheatre. This was the least expensive South African wine to receive a coveted 95 points from Tim Atkin MW in his 2019 South Africa Report!
On appearance this wine shows an alluring green tinge, revealing delicate flavours of melon and hints of tropical fruit. The Sauvignon Blanc aromas are prominent on the nose, with beautiful lime and prickly pear notes. Intense flavours, with great balance. A tight mineral core and creamy mid palate from the Chenin Blanc allows for great complexity and a persistent finish. The Sauvignon Blanc lends lovely, fresh acidity to the wine.
Wines from the Waterkloof Estate emphasise restraint, elegance and a strong mineral character due to the vineyards' exposed position on the upper slopes of the famed Schaapenberg Mountain. High above False Bay the Waterkloof vineyards face directly onto the Atlantic Ocean at the southern limit of the Stellenbosch wine region. This very special site with its strong maritime influence, steep aspect and unique soil profile allows for the production of truly fine wines.
