About this Item

Kevin Arnold Shiraz, 2006
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.

Critics Ratings

‘Ruby-red. Slightly reduced aromas of black raspberry, mocha and leather. Densely packed and spicy, showing more energy and aromatic lift in the middle palate than the lusher 2003. Syrah-typical brown spices carry through to the finish, which shows substantial dusty tannins and finesse.’ - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, 91/100 (Mar 2007)

‘A dash of Mourvèdre (6%) spices up this confident Rhône-style red. 2004 shows wet earth and scrub scents mingled with the wines’s trademark leather tone; round tannins approachable yet with life for 5+ yrs. 16 months oak, American portion down to 20%.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2008, 4*
