Circle of Life Chenin Blanc
NAME OF WINE:
Circle of Life, Waterkloof
Stellenbosch, South Africa
Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon
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.
SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS/VEGANS:
Suitable for vegetarians & vegans
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.
