Lot 102

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 on the slopes of the Helderberg. Having researched which varieties may perform best, Kevin planted a basket of Mediterranean varieties with the vision of producing an icon blend from the property. 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.

 Wine Storage

'(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,, 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)
