2016 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvèdre Rosé Stellenbosch (Biodynamic)
Too soon? Not for rosé from the Southern Hemisphere, and not for this perennial staff and customer favorite at K&L. This is one of our best-selling and most-raved-about rosés every year. Hand-picked from biodynamically farmed, old Mourvèdre vines in a cool coastal sub-region of Stellenbosch, it's a fresh, elegant wine that does a fantastic impression of Bandol (which is also predominantly made from Mourvèdre), but at a fraction of the cost! Waterkloof is a stunning property working with very natural, non-interventionist methods. The wines are pure, expressive and precisely balanced. I am excited to work with Waterkloof Estate as a Direct Import partner and hope you enjoy this year's Circumstance "Cape Coral" Rosé. (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L South African Wine Buyer) The winery's "tasting note from the glass of (winemaker) Nadia Barnard: Pale salmon hue. Delicate floral aromas, with hints of minerality prominent on the nose. The palate is soft with a lingering aftertaste. Traditionally the wine is served chilled on its own, but also marries well with salmon and fresh dishes."
