Winemaker Werner Engelbrecht is the big cheese at the meticulously brilliant, dashingly exciting and 100% sustainable Waterkloof. Working at the super-premium winery, he has been 'let loose' and is able to make the wines he wants rather than being tied to a commercial, marketing-driven remit. This Chenin has a kaleidoscopic range of honey-fruit flavours, centred on a core of orchard-fruit freshness. There's delicacy too, allowing aromatic expression as well as a subtle stoniness.
Werner is a pointlessly large man, with hands like shovels, who you might not like to surprise upon after dark. But, in actuality, he is a lovely, gentle giant, with a great love of wine and all its subtle nuances. And that is kind of his trademark - subtle intricacy and nuance. In The Devil's Peak Chenin he creates the extra richness by extending the lees contact and using some wild yeasts for the fermentation, giving this great value wine some real weight and character.
The Coastal region of South Africa is renowned for its fine and expressive fruit, resulting in wines with depth and complexity. Thanks to longstanding relationships, we keep ahead of the competition when it comes to securing the best parcels of fruit, when they are in so much demand. The unique adaptability and versatility of our South African range, matched with a wide range of foods or simply on their own by the glass, has been key to their success.
When we first tasted this wine we were blown away. It remains one of the most exciting wine experiences of late! It rekindled our passion in the pure, clarion wines of the north of Italy with a completely different flavour spectrum and a vitality.
Type: Grenache Blanc blend
We're all for the cloning of great, established styles. In the best way, they never quite work, never quite taste the same. And this is the great part. They emulate and, at the same time, create something completely new. In this case a Chateauneuf Blanc-style with a distinctly South African twist.
Type: Chardonnay blend
This wine is made by a man called Jesus at Bodegas Pirineos. This Bodega has always boasted some of the oldest vineyards in the whole region, giving a silky concentration to its produce. This speciality is important since many other great vineyards with indigenous stock have been ripped up.
