A classic Helderberg Cabernet Sauvignon showing characteristic sweet cedar wood, cold stone and light earthy tones with strong violet, red berry and black current fruit. The wine is elegantly structured with a typical tight and dry structure which finishes with great balance and freshness. The wine will age and develop harmoniously for 6 to 15 years.
The goal in producing The Jem is to truly express the diversity of our terroir, and more specifically the soils on Waterford Estate. To reach this goal of completeness, the blend is compromised of different varietals all grown on the property. Driven by Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe cherries, black current and cedar wood. Also well complimented by truffle like flavours and exotic spice. The wine is well layered and integrated tannins combine with fruit flavours to offer an elegant yet long lasting finish that is classically dry and rewarding.
Vibrant dark fruit, earthy and clove pepper spice lead the aromatics of this Stellenbosch Shiraz, accompanied by soft plum fruit undertones. Natural acidity and the classic granular tannins are very characteristic of the voluptuous nature of a Stellenbosch Shiraz. This vintage is named after Nadine, Kevin and Heather’s daughter.
