Circumstance Cape Coral Mourvèdre is produced from grapes from the Stellenbosch wine growing region, characterized by relatively mild winters, and long hot summers. Vines are cultivated under dryland conditions. Planted in cool, deep red soils which provide adequate water for this late ripening variety, vines can slowly ripen the grapes during the growing season. Pale salmon hue. Delicate floral aromas, with hints of minerality prominent on the nose. The palate is soft with a lingering aftertaste.
Serve chilled on its own or a fantastic food companion and is a natural partner for fish terrine, Rillettes de la Mer, salmon and Thai dishes.
Established in 2004, Waterkloof is a relatively new, privately owned estate in the south of Stellenbosch. The vineyards lie between 200 and 300 metres above sea level on the exposed steep upper slopes of the Schaapenberg Mountain and the estate has wonderful views out over False Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The Bay gives its name to their entry-point range, produced by False Bay Vineyards which is run by the Waterkloof team, sourcing grapes widely but highly selectively. Waterkloof's own vineyards lie in a south-facing ‘bowl’ and benefit from a variety of exposures as well as cooling (sometimes very cold) on and off shore breezes.
