'The best of the current crop of Waterkloof reds, this is a serious, structured, well-judged Cabernet Franc that's built for the longer haul. Grippy graphite tannins underpin aromas and flavours of capsicum, plum and black cherry with a top note of mocha oak. Drink 2022-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100

'Intriguing Cape fynbos notes can be enjoyed on the nose, with some beautiful spice and notes of plums. I enjoy swirling this wine in my glass to see how it evolves. It has great structure with a fresh acidity. I enjoy pairing it with a marinated rack of lamb in a variety of different herbs (such as parsley and thyme ) and some garlic.' – Nadia Barnard, Winemaker

Producer information Pioneering biodynamic winemaking in South Africa with their lunar cycles, deep-bed system, worm house and portable chicken coop, Waterkloof are unassumingly elegant and sophisticated in their approach to farming and winemaking. The Somerset West estate places a strong emphasis on minimal intervention and gentle handling to preserve the natural 'circle of life' in all areas on the farm, and this is reflected in their wines, which show a commonality of sophisticated restraint. Their white wines are particularly food-friendly and have received high acclaim internationally from critics such as Jamie Goode and the Independent Wine Review.
