Waterkloof, Seriously Cool Chenin Blanc 750ml 2018South Africa, Stellenbosch
'This Chenin Blanc flaunts pronounced aromas of citrus, stone fruit especially pear and also shows off elegant floral notes. The wine has a full and rich mouthfeel because of the longer alcoholic fermentation that keeps the fine lees in suspension. With the combination of concrete eggs and barrels, it gives us a wine that has great structure but also a lovely freshness to it.' – Nadia Barnard
Alc: 12.5% | RS: 5.0 g/L | TA: 5.1 g/L | PH: 3.31
Pioneers of 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.
