Waterkloof, Seriously Cool Cinsault 750ml 2019South Africa, Stellenbosch
'Our Cinsault is known as COOL because we recommend that you enjoy it at a lower temperature (around 14°C) and because it stems from the cooler slopes. We also describe it as SERIOUS because it ensures a well-structured, memorable length in the mouth.
The old bush vines gave rise to a soft, balanced tannin structure and elevated length. This wine is playful in its aromas with pronounced floral and perfume notes, backed by a savoury undertone. I enjoy going back to my glass to appreciate the complexity. In the mouth, the prominent fruit aromatics are complemented by soft tannins that develop effortlessly. This wine can be enjoyed on its own, but also pairs well with a variety of dishes, especially duck or a pork-belly inspired dish.' – Nadia Langenegger

Pioneering biodynamic winemaking in South Africa with their lunar cycles, deep-bed system, worm house and portable chicken coop, Waterkloof are unassumingly elegant and sophisticated in their approach to farming and winemaking. The Somerset West estate places a strong emphasis on minimal intervention and gentle handling to preserve the natural ‘circle of life’ in all areas on the farm, and this is reflected in their wines, which show a commonality of sophisticated restraint. Their white wines are particularly food-friendly and have received high acclaim internationally from critics such as Jamie Goode and the Independent Wine Review.
