Circle of Life Red, Waterkloof
- Stellenbosch, South Africa
- Waterkloof Estate
- Syrah/Shiraz, Merlot, Petit Verdot
A harmoniuosly integrated blend with great length that combines the spiciness of the Syrah, the fresh fruits of the Petit Verdot and the juiciness from the Merlot. The beginning is fresh and fruity with good acidity, evolving into riper flavours and herbaceous notes, with elegant tannins and fine, bright acid in the finish.
Founded by Paul Boutinot in 2004, Waterkloof is a family-owned farm using organic and biodynamic practices (although not certified). The farm is 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 Cellarmaster Nadia.
