The Five Soldiers vineyard is named after five tall stone pine trees known as the ‘Five Soldiers’ that tower over this site at Rustenberg.

Characters of ripe citrus, melon and peach with great minerality, rounded out by well-judged oaking. A very complex wine with a long and creamy finish and a good acid backbone. A powerful Chardonnay to rival the best in Burgundy, match this with pork belly and enjoy!

Description

Recognised globally as one of South Africa’s top five wine estates, Rustenberg is also one of the oldest in the Cape. In 1941 the Rustenberg Farm, which sits 6km north of Stellenbosch, was bought by Peter Barlow. The Barlows have been at Rustenberg for over 75 years: the longest period any one family has owned the farm with Simon Barlow taking over the running of the farm in 1987, and Murray, his son, now involved with winemaking and marketing. Murray Barlow is now cellarmaster at his family estate, and much deserved winner of the Diners Club Young Winemaker of the Year award in both 2013 and 2016.

Vineyards producing the grapes for Rustenberg wines climb the rich red slopes of the Simonsberg and Helderberg; a range of slopes and aspects allows site-specific plantings that enhance varietal characteristics. With a long and very proud history of producing exceptional wines, Rustenberg’s winemaking style is simple: produce quality wines true to the style of the estate and the brand.

    This wine is absolutely incredible and bursting with flavour. Rich, butterscotch notes. Smooth buttery finish.
