Origin

The Blaauwklippen valley is situated in the heart of the Stellenbosch wine region, with the Helderberg mountain to the south and Simonsberg Mountain further north. The area has a relatively hot and dry climate, although maritime breezes arise from False Bay which aids the cultivation of white varieties in particular.

Grape Variety

93% Chenin Blanc, 5% Chardonnay, 2% Viognier.

Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks (95%) and wooden barrels (5%). The Chardonnay and Viognier batches then undergo barrel ageing, blended with the Chenin Blanc to add texture and a well-rounded quality to the wine.

Alcohol Percentage

13.5%

Cellar Potential

Drink now and over the next 18 months.

Producer

The Waterford Estate came about through the collaboration of two families – the Ords and the Arnolds – who purchased these prime vineyards sites in the picturesque Blaauwklippen Valley in 1998. They built a new winery and revitalised existing vines and orchards that were in place. The property now boasts 120 hectares in the heart of the Stellenbosch region. Kevin Arnold is cellar master and has over 20 years’ experience in the area.

Food Match

Very versatile with any light meat, fish, salad or vegetarian dishes.
