Plush, pale and posh Cape Ros. Beautifully dry, mineral and firm with an evocative herbal, almost hoppy character. Elegant fresh red morello cherry fruit flavours abound with terrific textural mouthfeel and finish.
Wines from the Waterkloof Estate emphasise restraint, elegance and a strong mineral character due to the vineyards exposed position on the upper slopes of the famed Schaapenberg Mountain. High above False Bay the Waterkloof vineyards face directly onto the Atlantic Ocean at the southern limit of the Stellenbosch wine region. This very special site with its strong maritime influence, steep aspect and unique soil profile allows for the production of truly fine wines. The winemaking and viticultural team led by Werner Engelbrecht follow natural winemaking methods with minimal intervention, including the use of open-top fermenters, whole bunch pressing, wild yeast fermentation, extended fermentation periods and extra lees contact to maximise the terroir character. Since the first vintage in 2005 the estate has garnered widespread praise and many awards, producing some of South Africas best and most sought after Sauvignon and Merlot based wines. Waterkloof has also been at the forefront of innovation producing South Africas first iconic ros (Cape Coral). Wines under the Peacock Ridge label are produced from the lower more protected slopes and are rounder with greater generosity and a more forward style.
