Rust en Vrede’s flagship 1694 Classification is named to commemorate the date that Rust en Vrede was established, this is a slightly unusual blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, with an emphasis on the opulence of Rust en Vrede Syrah. This is an exemplary combination of Rust en Vrede’s two focus varieties with the grapes selected from the two single vineyard parcels of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, the oldest and best vines on the Estate.
The award winning 2017 vintage is a blend of 59% Syrah and 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and shows pronounced red and black cherry on the nose. Flavours of cassis, cedar, cumin, and ground coriander combine with fine, ripe tannins that coat the palate. Defined cherry and blackberry notes lend a dark fruit backbone to balanced cedar spice, vanilla pudding, and liquorice that create a harmonious complexity on the palate. Well-structured and concentrated without being overbearing.
