Circumstance Cape Coral Mourvèdre 2012
By Christian Eedes, 18 February 2013
Circumstance Cape Coral Mourvèdre from Waterkloof in Somerset West is one of the few pink wines around that I’m able to bear. The 2012 (R85 a bottle) underwent spontaneous fermentation which took five months to complete and then spent a further five months on the lees for extra complexity. Macerated strawberries and a hint of spice, quite thick textured thanks to that extended lees contact and a dry finish. Score: 15.5/20.
