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 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.
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.

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, licorice 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, Vinous.com, 92+/100
