Waterford Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

£24.95 incl. VAT

5 in stock

With over two decades of producing this Estate wine, it has systematically increased in quality, more consistently expressing the terroir of the Helderberg. The Waterford Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 shows off pure fruit and earthy notes complimented by a classical pencil lead aroma. A typical dry tannin structure with seamless balance to finish.

Vintage conditions

A vintage which will be remembered for drought and heat. Luckily Waterford’s location on the Helderberg mountain and the near proximity to the ocean allowed the vineyards to cool down overnight. The lack of water throughout the ripening season resulted in light bunches with tiny berries, giving the wines great colour and flavour. 

Vinification details

Aged for 19 months in 26% new, 225L French oak barrels.
