Waterkloof Circle of Life Red 2015
A Tasting Note from the Glass of winemaker Nadia Barnard:
Our Circle of Life Red is not a wine that is driven by a particular varietal or a specific parcel of a vineyard, nor constrained by a traditional blending style, for example, a Bordeaux or Rhône blend, but rather an elegant expression of the philosophy and totality of Waterkloof, as well as the vintage.
A perfectly integrated blend with soft tannins, long length- that keeps you intrigued as you savor it in your glass. The introduction is fresh and fruity with good acidity, evolving into riper flavours and herbaceous notes with a light acid on the finish. It is very versatile and will complement numerous dishes but I like to enjoy it with a hearty lamb shank.
