    The Waterkloof Circumstance Merlot smells invitingly of red berries, sour plums and fragrant earthy aromas. Elegant and with a pleasant acid structure, it caresses the palate with juicy fruit aromas. Great length with fine tannins in the finish.

    Treatment in the cellar

    On arrival in the winery, the hand-picked grapes were completely destemmed, sorted by hand and filled into open wooden fermenters, where they fermented spontaneously using wild yeast. The wine spent 30 days on the skins, after which malolactic fermentation took place in the barrel. The wine then matured for 18 months in 15% new barriques and 85% second and third French barriques. The wine was neither refined nor filtered before bottling.
