Waterford Estate is situated in one of the world's most visually arresting pockets of paradise. Nestled in the picturesque Blaauwklippen Valley, in the world-renowned Stellenbosch region, this 120-hectare property boasts ancient citrus groves, rolling lawns, water features and fragrant lavender beds. The winery was designed by architect Alex Walker and created from quarried local bedrock, stones from the vineyard and timber grown on the estate. It was styled along the engaging terracotta design of the classic Bordeaux chateaus of France. This Sauvignon is clear and bright. It has juicy quince and gooseberry aromas with a steely minerality up front giving way to a creamy, yeasty mouthfeel. With a long finish, this is a great food wine. Serve with grilled game and roast vegetables, or a feta and couscous salad.
