Circumstance, Merlot


AVAILABILITY: 12 in stock

Serious Merlot - think St Emilion with guts. A fine wine with persistence, complexity and great purity - dense black cassis and bramble fruit aromas combined with plums, spice and a creamy oak on the palate. This wine is full of character and personality - a must-try for a Merlot fan!

Try with Herb-crusted Lamb, Pizza can be spicy if you like.  An excellent wine for a Sunday Roast.

About the Region and Producer

Waterkloof was founded back in 2004 and is a family-owned vineyard using sustainable Organic practices.  The vineyards are perched high up on the windswept Schapenberg growing area, overlooking False Bay and the climate moderating Atlantic Ocean.  Healthy soils, a naturally low yield and a long growing season help provide Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard with balanced grapes that offer a clear sense of place and terroir.  In the winery they are transformed into wines with little intervention resulting in very fine, inimitable and eminently quaffable wines which are often best enjoyed with food.
