Circle of Life was conceived as the story of Waterkloof – once conventionally farmed, Waterkloof’s great potential was spotted by Paul Boutinot who initiated its transformation into a living, breathing organic and biodynamic vineyard.
And its latest release, 2016 Circle of Life White, showcases both the gentle hand applied in the winery and a life-affirming approach in the vineyards … it shows exactly what eco- friendly farming can deliver. The wine is only released in selected years, when integration of its components shines brightest.
This new release is mostly Sauvignon Blanc (think beautiful aromatics of lime and gooseberry), with some Chenin Blanc and a touch of Semillon.
It costs around R160 a bottle.
