ageing : 19 Months, 32% new 225L French oak barrels Wine

A wine which encompasses our entire philosophy at Waterford Estate, the true reflection of the diversity and fruit on our property.

in the vineyard : 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 especially for white wines. Highest recorded tonnages for Waterford Estate to date. Whites were challenging but the red wines have impressed.

All the components of The Jem blend are from vineyards grown on Waterford Estate. Of the 120 hectare property, 48 hectares of vineyards stretch throughout the property, offering several distinct soil composition and varietal choices. The extreme mountainous region of Helderberg Stellenbosch as well as the close proximity to two oceans provides a warm region by day but a uniquely cool region by night.

in the cellar : 19 Months, 32% new 225L French oak barrels Wine.
Quantity: 2,800 cases
