Waterford Estate is situated in the picturesque Blaauwklippen Valley, in the world-renowned Stellenbosch region. At Waterford Estate, they have chosen to use only half of the total 120 hectares of land for the planting of vines, in order to preserve and maintain the natural fauna and flora on the Estate. Waterford Estate is owned by the Ord Family and developed under the watchful eye of Kevin Arnold, Cellar Master and Managing Partner, since 1998.

Cabernet Sauvignon is the leading varietal on Waterford Estate, as selected by the terroir found on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain. The well drained soils are very well suited to the growth of this varietal, driven by deep sandstone parent rocks and layered gravel with sporadic deposits of schist. The underlying clay in these soils help to buffer against the heat experienced in Stellenbosch during the summer months.

The Helderberg Mountain region is known to produce Cabernet Sauvignon characterised by earthy aromatics, well-textured tannins and fresh finishes. These are some of the factors that contribute towards the Helderberg area being particularly well known for longevity in their wines.

The current vintage has yet to be tasted, the tasting notes below are from the previous vintage:
'Mark Le Roux describes this Cabernet Sauvignon-based red (there’s a little Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc in the mix) as Waterford’s “flagship wine”. It’s certainly a brilliant red, deliberately made in a fresher style. Focused and refined, with subtle graphite and green herb notes and a core of cassis leaf fruit. 2020-30.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 95/100
