Lot 234

Waterford
Kevin Arnold Shiraz, 2002
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. At the entrance of the Blaauwklippen Valley, the Shiraz was Waterford’s most famous wine before the release of the Jem. Interestingly Oprah Winfrey chose the Kevin Arnold Shiraz to accompany the main course at her 50th birthday celebration.

Benchmark Cape Rhóne-style red (10% mourvédre) 02 named for son ‘Michael Ian’. Strong farmyard whiffs obscure fruit on nose, palate more generous with beef & brambles. Built for long haul. 01 VDG. Cellar at least 5 years. 14% alc.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 2005

‘(includes 10% mourvedre) Ruby-red. Raspberry, black cherry, gunflint, tree bark and eucalyptus on the slightly sauvage nose. Ripe, fat, dense and dry, with flavors of black fruits, violet and gunflint. Nicely sweetened by the 50% American oak component. Finishes with intriguing gunflint and mineral notes. Very impressive for the vintage.’ – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com 89+/100 (2005)
