The Jem, 2009
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.
On release, the 2004 was South Africa’s most expensive wine and a decade later, this 7-variety blend is a stellar example of one of Stellenbosch's greatest vintages ever.

'(a blend based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz): Full ruby-red. High-toned aromas of cassis, raspberry, liquorice and spicecake complicated by coffee, mocha and leather. Tactile on the palate but also juicy and penetrating, with excellent intensity to the flavors of dark raspberry, spices, coffee and leather. A bit rustic in a positive way. Finishes concentrated and long, with serious tannins reaching the front teeth. Another impressive wine from this excellent vintage. ’ Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com, 91+/100 (2013)

'A nod to the Old World. This is very well crafted and perhaps a masterclass in blending, but it will need bottle age.' - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 93/100 (2013)
