This blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Semillon has beautiful lime and prickly pear notes on the nose. Intense and well balanced on the palate with 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.
This is lovely with a seared tuna steak or smoked potato gnocci.
"This is a really honest, well-made wine from the most stunning wine estate, dedicated to making wines with a sense of place. This blend is zesty and complex which makes it a great foodie wine, it's mega with fish dishes."
Founded by Paul Boutinot in 2004, Waterkloof is a family-owned farm using organic practices. 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 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.
