Tasting notes on the 2016 vintage:
'There's been a welcome shift in style on this wine in recent years towards less new oak and alcohol. Blended with 12% Mourvèdre and fermented with 2% whole bunches, it's inky, savoury and intense with scented blackberry fruit, some black olive and tapenade and a fresh, granular finish. Drink 2021-28.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 94/100

'The 2016 Shiraz Waterford Kevin Arnold, blended with 12% Mourvèdre, has a very Old World–influenced bouquet of blackberry and Dorset plum, quite earthy and slightly ferrous, and maybe just missing a little fruit intensity. The well-balanced palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and tarry black fruit laced with licorice and white pepper. Drinking now, but this should still afford around a decade of drinking pleasure. Drink 2021 - 2031.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100 (Apr 2021)

'Concentrated red and dark fruit with warm earthy aromatics can be found in this Stellenbosch Shiraz, accompanied by plum fruit and leather spice undertones. The 2016 vintage produced a lovely soft and velvety textured Shiraz, with the slight addition of Mourvedre to build in a little tension in the finish of the wine. This vintage is named after Robert Charles, Kevin and Heather Arnolds eldest son.' – Kevin Arnold, Winemaker
