The Jem, 2004
3 (1 x 3) 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, South Africa’s most expensive wine, was a Cabernet Sauvignon-led blend, with Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Sangiovese and Barbera all forming part of this vinous masterpiece.

The Maiden Jem is maturing perfectly. A luxurious, elegant and poised Stellenbosch red that balances savouriness and pure fruit. It’s a powerful expression with a soft finish for drinking over the next 5 years. Roland Peens 92/100 (2019). 

Good deep, bright red. Redcurrant, tobacco and fresh herbs on the nose. Juicy, bright and nicely focused, with lovely lift to the flavors of black cherry, red berries, smoke, liquorice and mocha. Harmonious acidity gives the mid-palate a penetrating, primary quality. Sexy, vibrant wine, finishing with firm tannic spine and lovely palate-saturating flavor without weight. Lay this one down.’  Stephen Tanzer,, 92+/100
