Rich cassis and mulberry with cedar and tobacco reveal Cabernet as the backbone to the blend, after which fresh red and black cherry with black pepper spice show the Syrah component. 61% Cabernet Sauvignon 30% Syrah and 9% Merlot make up the blend. Intense fruit flavours are layered with mocha, Christmas cake, sandalwood and leather, bringing complexity to the wine. Fresh, fruity acidity balances the firm, coating tannins, culminating in a clean, dry finish that indicates good ageing potential.

    Description

    For over 300 years Rust en Vrede has stood peacefully among the vineyards of Stellenbosch, with the original farm buildings built between 1780 and 1825. This prestigious estate was purchased by the Engelbrecht family almost 35 years ago, since when they have specialised in producing only red wine with the focus on Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot. These are wines with all the hallmarks of complexity and balance, as well as a sense of place which reflects their heritage. Many accolades have been bestowed upon the estate, including Rust en Vrede Estate Wine being chosen by President Nelson Mandela to be served at the Nobel Peace Prize dinner and hosting the Queen of Denmark for a lunch at the Manor House. Rust en Vrede was nominated as the first South African red wine in the Top 100 Wines of the World and went on to repeat this achievement for four consecutive years.
