The Waterford Kevin Arnold Shiraz 2018

Shiraz is a variety chosen for its property of expressing a sense of place, and in this instance, vineyards located in the Helderberg region of Stellenbosch. Lingering aromatics of dark plums, liquorice spice, subtly layered with earthy notes are typical characteristics. The wine is vinified and matured in 500-litre, older barriques to preserve the delicate aromas and structure of the wine. Our Waterford Shiraz is named after the first winemaker at the Estate, who had an incredible passion for the cultivar.

96% Shiraz, 4% Mourvèdre

93/100 – Tim Atkin MW SA Special Report 2022
4.5 Stars – Platter’s Wine Guide 2023
Double Gold – Gilbert & Gaillard International Challenge 2023

VINTAGE REVIEW
With the winter having lower levels of rainfall we knew that the vineyard was going
to be stressed during the springtime but what followed was near-perfect growing
conditions for flowering and berry set. Harvest time was characterised by
moderate temperatures and a distinct lack of heat waves which was ideal for berry
ripening. The vineyards remained very healthy and produced the perfect bunches,
smaller berries than what we usually expect but this gives us great concentration.
Apart from being a warm vintage the wines show good freshness and elegance.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS
Pairs well with lean red meats, such as venison, as well as a variety of earthy
components.

WINE FACTS
No new wood is used in the making of this wine. Gentle vinification methods such
as whole berry fermentation and soft extraction methods by means of only pump
overs brings out the purity in this wine.
