About this Item

Kevin Arnold Shiraz, 2013
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

‘Grown on iron rich koffieklip soils, Waterford’s top Shiraz is suitably dense, sappy and ferrous, with complex, stony grip, layers of red fruits and pepper spice and just a hint of wood. I can’t recall tasting a better bottling of this wine. Drink 2018-25.’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2017, 95/100

‘Subtitled ‘Nadine’, 2013 straddles flavour spectrum from peppery spice to earthy leather; velvety, with touches liquorice & fynbos on deep, concentrated finish. Dashes mourvèdre & grenache in the blend, 22 months old oak, then year in bottle. Also in 1.5, 3 & 5L.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 4.5* (91/100)
