About this Item

Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Kevin Arnold’s decades of experience at Delheim and Rust en Vrede led him to the prime Waterford estate in the Blaauwklippen valley on the slopes of the Helderberg. Here, in the 'golden triangle' of Stellenbosch, renowned for its favourable terroir for producing world class, structured reds, Kevin (along with business partner Jeremy Ord) has grown Waterford into a luxury brand for fine wine.
Waterford Cabernet Sauvignon has been a consistent performer for all of the past decade, reflecting this in market popularity and gradual appreciation.
