Reviews and Ratings

Something wonderful here! A gorgeous blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Chenin Blanc grapes in this luscious South African white wine. Aromas of smoke, green apple, butter and smoke. Perfect for grilled chicken. MINE: Waterkloof's Circle of Life is a pale lemon, medium-bodied, Sauvignon Blanc blend. Very ripe on the nose with peach, nectarines and ripe honey melon with cedar spice on the nose. On the palate the wine is desert dry with zesty acidity and lime, gooseberry, lingering ripe tropical fruit on the palate. Well-constructed and well-balanced. Enjoy now and can hold in cellar for a couple of years. OTHER: Carola Price rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review: Clean and well balanced. A little too much oak but the fruit is outstanding and the acidity is there to keep everything in check to pair with food. Would love to see the development in a year or two. Pair now with Greek food, lemon and pepper pasta and pork and veggie dumplings with Ponzu. OTHER: Leesy, savoury and rich, this old wood-fermented white is a cuvée of mostly Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc with a little Chardonnay and Semillon. Textured, bready and complex, with flavours of beeswax and grapefruit. Drink Date: 2018-23. Score - 94 (Tim Atkin, MW, timatkin.com, South Africa Special Report 2018). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
