Take one very successful Wine Shipper with a passion for wine and a record for creating some very good wines. Allow him the funds, the time and the contacts to scour the world for a very good but as yet under recognised vineyard and you have the starting point to what I believe will become a very good range of wines.
Paul Boutinot is the shipper he has in his lifetime built one of the UK’s leading wine shippers partially by working closely with the growers to develop wines that will sell. He is passionate about wine and Waterkloof Estate in Stellenbosch is his chance to put his accumulated knowledge into play.
Circle of Life is the vineyards top cuvee and is blend of a wide variety of grapes the exact blend they keep to themselves. Waterkloof follow Bio-Dynamic practises working very closely with the land in order to get the best possible results. This wine has great charm. It’s a very modern international style of wine with well integrated ripe tannins, complex aromas and lovely dark fruit. I highly recommend it.
