Circumstance Cabernet Franc by Waterkloof is a classic Cabernet Franc on the nose with hints of pencil shaving, tomato leaf and lovely red fruits. The palate is a long and elegant body with memorable finish and weightless tannins. A Cabernet Franc that is great for being a food wine.

Living soils and a natural approach to winemaking means that each of the single-varietal wines in the Circumstance range is truly defined by the circumstances influencing the chosen varietal and vineyard blocks, including: soil, aspect, altitude and vintage. The Cabernet Franc is from two adjoining, windswept, south-facing (less sun exposure) blocks 240-60m above and a mere 2 miles from The Atlantic. These factors combine to produce low yields, balanced grapes and wines with a true sense of place. Grapes are hand-harvested and brought to the cellar by horses for hand-sorting. De-stemming and sorting takes place and fermentation happens spontaneously with wild yeast in large, open-top wooden fermenters. Manual punch-downs or foot-pressing pigeage take place 1-2 times per day and the wine is left on skins for 35 days before going through malolactic fermentation in mainly old barriques then ageing for 23 months in the same vessels.

No fining, just a light filtration. No additions other than sulphur. Vegan friendly, biodynamic wine. 65 barrels made.

Food Pairing:
Enjoy with slow roasted lamb (shank rubbed with rosemary would be excellent) or beef.
