Waterford Estate The Jem

A wine that truly expresses our underlying philosophy at Waterford Estate, by reflecting the diversity and exceptional fruit of the farm. Inviting aromatics of rich dark chocolate and plum fruit, with additional layers of earthy tones, clove spice, crushed violets and a combination of dark, red berries. The palate is well balanced and effortlessly complements the aromatics. Coated with velvety tannins which provide fullness, and a natural acidity that adds vibrance and elegance to the lasting finish. Displaying a classic dry profile, generosity on the palate, and texture that fully represents its heritage.
Dark ruby, with a Morello cherry rim. Expressing soft worn leather, cocoa bean, blackberries, cloves, black peppercorn and charcoal silk cherries and warm spiced red fruit in the end note remain crafted on the fi nish.
This wine displays consistently in terms of its colour and expression, but with evolutionary notes of Cuban cigars and spiced cedar, mulberry and damson fruit and the further exploration of the clove and pepper spice. The wine remains youthful and poised with elegant silky tannins which grip the palate.

Our iconic flagship blend, named after the owner of Waterford Estate, Jeremy Ord, or “Jem”, as he is affectionately known. This is a master blend of different red varietals that collectively epitomise the best of the vintage at Waterford Estate. Our goal with this wine is to truly express the diversity of our terroir, and more specifically our soils. The blend is comprised of different grape varietals all grown on the property. Cabernet Sauvignon serves as the base and the blend is completed by different varietals of Mediterranean origin.

“Great wines are born from the understanding of the plant, soil and climate of a specific site, together with the creative art of winemaking and blending. This is often a timeless pursuit, but when it comes together, the reward is eternal” – Kevin Arnold.
