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 2018 vintage is a blend of 63% Syrah and 37% Cabernet Sauvignon and shows intense blackcurrant with lead pencil blanketed in a soft perfume of violets. On the palate, well defined fruit flavours of cassis, red currant, and bramble dominate underscored with sandalwood and liquorice. Spicy notes of freshly ground black pepper with cinnamon and clove bring depth. Structured with robust tannins and a textured finish of blackcurrant with nutmeg. Opulence meets restraint.
