    The Jem 2011

    US$124.00
    The goal in producing The Jem is to truly express the diversity of our terroir, and more specifically the soils on Waterford Estate. To reach this goal of completeness, the blend is compromised of different varietals all grown on the property. Driven by Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe cherries, black current and cedar wood. Also well complimented by truffle like flavours and exotic spice. The wine is well layered and integrated tannins combine with fruit flavours to offer an elegant yet long lasting finish that is classically dry and rewarding.


    Pre-order now for delivery in October 2017.

    Vintage Review:

    An excellent cold winter but with less than ideal rainfall. The growing season started off rather fast with the warmer conditions and drier soils. Lack of wind and rain during flowering produced an excellent crop for the vintage. The growing season was hot and dry up until the end of harvest. Whites are rich with hints of oiliness and reds are soft textured with ripe fruit notes.

    Cultivars:

    45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Shiraz, 11% Merlot, 6% Mourvedre, 14% Cabernet franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Barbera, 2% Sangiovese

    Barrel ageing:

    21 Months, 25% new 225L French oak barrels
