Waterkloof Circle of Life Red: Taste the Story of Our Vineyards

Waterkloof Circle of Life Red is a uniquely South African red wine blend that tells the story of a once conventional farmed vineyard that has been transformed into an organic and regenerative vineyard using unique farming techniques. Farm manager Christiaan Loots and his team utilise draught horses to distribute their soil-enriching compost and microbial preparations, which ensures loose soil and more life that helps vines spread and take up everything they need from the earth. This produces honest, terroir-driven wines that are genuinely made in the vineyard.

South African Red Wines: What to Expect

South Africa is known for its distinctive and complex red wines, particularly its red wine blends. Unlike traditional blending styles, Waterkloof Circle of Life Red produces wines not driven by varietal or specific vineyard parcels. Instead, they are a true reflection of Waterkloof’s totality, philosophy and specificity. This approach has unique blends with various flavours and aromas, including black cherry, cassis, oak, herbaceous notes, and subtle tastes of dark berries, vanilla and cinnamon.

Founded by Paul Boutinot in 2004, Waterkloof is a family-owned farm using organic practices. The farm is perched high up on the windswept Schapenberg, overlooking False Bay and The Atlantic Ocean. Living soils, naturally low yields and a long growing season help provide talented Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard with naturally balanced grapes that are imbued with a truly defining sense of origin. Those grapes are then transformed into wine with a minimum of intervention. The resulting wines are fine, inimitable and best enjoyed with food.
