Waterkloof Circumstance Sauvignon Blanc 2013


This is a lovely South African Sauvignon Blanc from biodynamic winery Waterkloof, which I visited last year. It’s the first release of a Waterkloof wine made by new winemaker Nadia Barnard.


Waterkloof Circumstance Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Stellenbosch, South Africa
Ripe, rich pear and peach notes as well as lively grapefruit freshness. There’s a rich texture and mouthfeel to this wine, which is fruity, broad and alive with lovely presence and keen acidity offsetting the richness. Impressive stuff. 92/100 (UK retail stockists D Byrne, Whole Foods, Palmers Wine Store, All About Wine)
