'Very much a Sauvignon that aspires to complexity, this False Bay-influenced white is deftly wooded in larger oak barrels, with taut, crunchy acidity, grapefruit and elderflower flavours and a herbal finish. Drink 2021-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 91/100

'A great representation of the Schapenberg terroir showing hints of lime and gooseberries on the nose. This is a Sauvignon with depth showing a round mouthfeel which is lifted by the fresh acidity which is typically associated with the varietal as well as the cooler climate sites. Its a treat to enjoy this wine with a variety of different seafood dishes – my favorite being crayfish on the grill drizzled with a bit of lime and butter.' – 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.
