Wines from the Waterkloof Estate emphasise restraint, elegance and a strong mineral character due to the vineyards’ exposed position on the upper slopes of the famed Schaapenberg Mountain. High above False Bay the Waterkloof vineyards face directly onto the Atlantic Ocean at the southern limit of the Stellenbosch wine region. This very special site with its strong maritime influence, steep aspect and unique soil profile allows for the production of truly fine wines. The winemaking and viticultural team led by Werner Engelbrecht follow natural winemaking methods with minimal intervention, including the use of open-top fermenters, whole bunch pressing, wild yeast fermentation, extended fermentation periods and extra lees contact to maximise the terroir character. Since the first vintage in 2005 the estate has garnered widespread praise and many awards, producing some of South Africa’s best and most sought after Sauvignon and Merlot based wines. Sourced from the unique terroir of Waterkloof. A steely and mineral Sauvignon Blanc with great purity, restraint and elegance. Flavours of elderflower, gooseberry, fresh peas, cut grass and kiwi fruit are matched by fine acidity and a fresh, long citrus finish. This is a serious wine with real predigree and amongst one of the finest examples of South African's huge potential with this variety.
