    Waterford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    RM182.86
    A classic Helderberg Cabernet Sauvignon showing characteristic sweet cedar wood, cold stone and light earthy tones with strong violet, red berry and black current fruit. The wine is elegantly structured with a typical tight and dry structure which finishes with great balance and freshness. The wine will age and develop harmoniously for 6 to 15 years.

    Vintage Review:

    Good long winter, but late rains and cold delaying pruning. Great windless conditions experienced during flowering resulted in a high yielding vintage. February temperatures were extremely hot pushing ripening and this made for a quick harvest. Highest recorded tonnages for Waterford Estate. Whites were challenging and the red wines have seriously impressed.

    Cultivars:

    90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot

    Barrel Ageing:

    18 months, 34% new, 225L French oak barrels

    Waterford Estate Chardonnay 2015

    RM124.88
    A brilliant olive-green hue very characteristic of this single vineyard Chardonnay. The aromatics of this wine is driven by fresh peach pip, lime and a gentle influence from oak. The age of these vines still prove to produce lovely restraint, tightly structured wines which are rather perfumed when young but develop beautifully from time spent in bottle, 2-5 years from release.

    Waterford Elgin Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    RM93.66
    A strict selection of Elgin’s best quality vineyards. A more restrained style of Sauvignon blanc showing fresh granadilla and green apple fruit, with underlying chalk and slate notes confirming the Elgin origin of the grapes. The palate is finely textured with soft fruit, tight acidity, and a deceptively long finish of flavours. A wine showing the true expression of Elgin terroir on Sauvignon blanc.
