Circumstance Cape Coral Rosé

Beautifully dry, with clean minerality and a herbal character, reminiscent of the Fynbos nearby. Elegant fresh fruit flavours with a delicate hint of creamy dried apricot and fig, give way to a delicate, stony minerality.

Description

Details

The Waterkloof Estate was founded in 2004, ending Paul Boutinot’s persistent and uncompromising 10 year search for a vineyard site with the potential to produce truly fine wine with a defining sense of origin. Located on the south-facing slopes of Schapenberg Hill near Somerset in the Stellenbosch district of the Western Cape’s Coastal Region, Waterkloof shares its magnificent Atlantic views with free-roaming peacocks and other natural fauna and flora attracted to this haven. Certified by Demeter in 2015, their vineyards are of only a few in the Cape to boast official biodynamic approval and status. The estate has 56 hectares under vine and Tim Atkin’s Cape Classification currently ranks Waterkloof as 5th Growth level. With production around 165,000 bottles per year, Waterkloof make “honest wines” from their unique biodynamic coastal site. Respect for nature, traditional winemaking practices and minimal intervention are all key to their success.

The Waterkloof portfolio consists of: Waterkloof, Circumstance, Circle of Life, Seriously Cool and False Bay.

Vineyards
Grapes were hand-harvested and a gentle whole-bunch pressing extracted only the best juice. No further maceration of the juice with the skins was allowed. The natural occurring yeast was allowed to ferment the juice at temperatures of 16 to 18ºC, which took 13 weeks to complete. It was left on the primary lees for another month to add further complexity before bottling.

Vinification
The wine was fashioned in the traditional French Blanc de Noir style. The grapes were hand harvested and a gentle whole bunch pressing took place. No further maceration of the juice with the skins was allowed. The juice was separated from the skins by draining and natural fermentation proceeded until dry.

Tasting Notes
Beautifully dry, with clean minerality and a herbal character, reminiscent of the Fynbos nearby. Elegant fresh fruit flavours with a delicate hint of creamy dried apricot and fig, give way to a delicate, stony minerality.
