    The Jem 2011

    US$124
    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.

    Vintage Review:
    An excellent cold winter but with less than ideal rainfall. The growing season started off rather fast with the warmer conditions and drier soils. Lack of wind and rain during flowering produced an excellent crop for the vintage. The growing season was hot and dry up until the end of harvest. Whites are rich with hints of oiliness and reds are soft textured with ripe fruit notes.

    Cultivars:

    45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Shiraz, 11% Merlot, 6% Mourvedre, 14% Cabernet franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Barbera, 2% Sangiovese

    Barrel ageing:

    21 Months, 25% new 225L French oak barrels

    Kevin Arnold Shiraz 2013

    US$37
    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.

    Waterford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    US$41
    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.

    Waterford Estate Chardonnay 2015

    US$28
    A brilliant olive-green hue very characteristic of this single vineyard Chardonnay. The aromatics of this wine is driven by fresh peach pip, lime and a gentle influence from oak. The age of these vines still prove to produce lovely restraint, tightly structured wines which are rather perfumed when young but develop beautifully from time spent in bottle, 2-5 years from release.
