Waterford Estate The Jem 2004

Waterford Estate released their flagship red wine, The Jem, in October 2007. Waterford's ambition has always been to make the best possible red wine from their home grown vineyards, a wine that expresses Waterford's ethos of uncompromising quality. This wine has been ten years in the making, and is dedicated to, and named after, Jeremy Ord, the proprietor of Waterford Estate, who is fondly known as Jem to his friends and family.

Hints of lead pencil shavings are infused with a truffle like flavours that combine to show spice and eathyness. Layers of very finely intergrated tannins combine with refined fruit flavours to offer an elegant yet long lasting finnish that is classically dry and rewarding.

Decanted prior to consumption, a delicate tannin structure with enough body to handle almost any dish both white and red meats.
