Holding a deep, dense but brilliant ruby-purple colour, it invites the bouquet with savoury aromas which quickly evaporate, leaving lovely menthol-eucalyptus, blackberry and molasses aromas. The savoury note returns on the palate, pleasantly integrating with rich blackberry, black plum, coffee, pepper, cinnamon and clove notes. The tannins are richer softer and sweeter, mentholated char and fresh herbs carry out the long finish.

Waterford Estate is situated in the picturesque Blaauwklippen Valley, in the world-renowned Stellenbosch region. At Waterford Estate, we have chosen to use only half of the total 120 hectares of land for the planting of vines, in order to preserve and maintain the natural fauna and flora on the Estate. Waterford Estate is owned by the Ord Family and developed under the watchful eye of Kevin Arnold, Cellar Master and Managing Partner, since 1998. Waterford Estate is situated in one of the world’s most visually arresting pockets of paradise. Nestled in the picturesque Blaauwklippen Valley, in the world renowned Stellenbosch region, this 120 hectare property owned by Jeremy and Leigh Ord and managed by partner and Cellar master Kevin Arnold. The Estate boasts old citrus groves, rolling lawns, water features and fragrant lavender and rosemary beds. You’d be forgiven for thinking you were in the heart of Provence or the Spanish countryside, with your first glimpse of this enchanting realm. However, we are immensely proud of our uniquely South African location and the rich diversity of our indigenous flora and fauna. The winery was styled along the engaging terracotta design and was the result of winemaker Kevin Arnold and architect Alex Walker teaming up to create the home of Waterford Estate wines. The centre piece of the magnificent courtyard is the Waterford Estate fountain. This feature has been immortalised in the Waterford Estate label and represents a fundamental component of our philosophy. The Waterford Way is to be prosperous. To flow with nature’s cycles, seasons and chapters, and to achieve longevity by perpetuating what has worked before.
