Waterford Estate is a winery situated in the Blaauwklippen Valley in Stellenbosch and is renowned for producing terroir-specific wines. Each vintage of this wine is named after one of the children of the Ord and Arnold families. This vintage is named after Robert Charles, Kevin and Heather Arnolds' eldest son.
This vintage which will be remembered for drought and heat. Luckily for Waterford’s location on the Helderberg mountain and the near proximity to the ocean, the vineyards could cool down over night. The lack of water throughout the ripening season resulted in light bunches with tiny berries, giving the wines great colour and flavour. The 2016 vintage produced a lovely soft and velvety textured Shiraz, with the slight addition of Mourvedre to build in a little tension in the finish of the wine.

I look forward to drinking them all over the next Read more
