Waterford Estate, Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Club

South Africa, Helderberg Region, Stellenbosch, 2013

Waterford Estate, Cabernet Sauvignon

Price: £26.52

The 2013 vintage expresses a softer, yet more concentrated aroma of dark fruit, pencil shavings and earthy tones, and the palate offers more velvety tanins compared to the 2012. This wine still ever consistent to the Helderberg terroir providing richly structured wines with good acidity. The wine is classically driven by a tight and dry structure allowing for good aging potential of at least 8 to 13 years.

A long and cold winter, 35% more rain than usual. An excellent growing season until storm winds hit late October (up to 118km/hr) causing excessive damage in the vineyards, crop losses of up to 60%. Odd showers during second half of harvest giving reds a longer hang time. Outstanding white wines, in particular Chardonnay. Red wines came out with lovely soft textures and richness.
