Circumstance Cabernet Franc
- Stellenbosch, South Africa
- Waterkloof Estate
- Cabernet Franc
Classic Cabernet Franc on the nose with taut blackcurrant and wild plum fruit, hints of pencil shaving and lightly herbal notes. A taut, concentrated fruit filled wine which opens in the glass to give a complex, spicy finish with fresh acidity and supple tannins.
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.
