The Waterford Antigo takes its name from the colour of the soils in which the specific Cabernet Vineyard, that makes up majority of the blend, is planted. Waterford Estate is located on the Helderberg Mountain, which is renowned for producing the best red wines in South Africa, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. The red, clay, rich soils of this vineyard bring softer and plush elegant fruit to the aromatics. They also create tannins which are richer softer and sweeter to what we are used to on Waterford Estate. The original plan was to release it as a single varietal wine, but its uniqueness necessitated the creation of the blend.
