Circumstance Merlot

This is a real understated beauty, that if tasted blind would be confidently declared a fine expression of old-school St Emilion, before the alcohol levels started hitting 14.5%+! From the wonderful team at Waterkloof, from vineyards close to the sea that get battered by fierce, cool winds that sweep in each afternoon from the Atlantic. They go to extraordinary lengths to farm biodynamically and sustainably, which I can personally vouch for having been involved in making a batch of the worm tea they feed to the vines on my last visit! NB No worms were harmed in making the tea!) A delicious mix of soft, supply plum and bramble fruit, with a fine lick of creamy oak on the finish. Elegant, polished and a complete steal.
