    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.

    Les Oliviers Merlot Mourvedre

    From the warm vineyards of the Languedoc comes this absolute stormer of a wine. I love finding wines that I know I can just sit with a large glass of with a good book or zonked out in front of the TV and they will just evaporate. Perfect mid –week wine, screwtop bottle so those of you with will power can just enjoy a good glass and savour another the next night.

    I can do no better in describing this wine than use the shipper’s tasting notes.

    ‘A wine of real presence and character named after the olive groves, ‘oliviers’ that flourish around the sun-drenched vineyards of southern France.  Grapes come from two separate plots of Merlot and Mourvèdre to produce this lusciously fruity red wine with a slightly wild edge. The intense red berry fruit aromas are backed up by a touch of pepper. A supple palate with smooth integrated tannins, lead to a rich satisfying finish.’
