An idea sparked in 2014 to bottle all the building blocks of The Jem as single bottlings, only the best performing building blocks in a vintage would be bottled. Until one day, all 8 building blocks can be presented alongside The Jem, revealing the individual characters which make up the unique Waterford Estate blend. Shiraz is another valuable varietal at Waterford Estate. Sections of soil which offer more red clay and Granite material situated on slightly warmer slopes are well suited for Shiraz. These elements bring about a great sense of spice in the wine. This vineyard which is higher up on the Helderberg mountain slope, has cool evenings due to altitude as well as the near proximity to the ocean. This element adds lovely loral and violet notes to the wine.
