Tasting Notes: Opaque Ruby. Dried dark fruits, dark chocolate and elegant cassis are complimented by sweet cinnamon and savoury spice. These aromas lead through to a hint of paprika and earthiness from the oak influence. This wine is full of juicy dark fruit flavours and granular savoury tannins that give balance to the refined fruit purity.

History: Established in 1694, Rust en Vrede is proud to be part of a remarkable three hundred year old wine tradition. Since 1977 the Engelbrecht family has specialized in the exclusive production of red wine, with the focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Proprietor Jean Engelbrecht has worked to maintain Rust en Vrede as one of South Africa’s premium red wine estates, with full-bodied and complex wines that reflect the uniqueness of its Stellenbosch terroir.

Vintage: Picking for the Single Vineyard fruit started a bit later than usual in the first week of March and went on until the 10th of April. The vintage was that of far larger proportions, coming in at 44% larger than average. Due to a good spring, fruit set was good and led to high yields. The last two weeks of harvest brought rain which mimicked that of the typical Bordeaux season, these rains were consistent and helped ripen the fruit which led to an elegant vintage.
