Established in 1694, Rust en Vrede is proud to be part of a remarkable three hundred year old wine tradition. Since1977 the Engelbrecht family has specialized in the exclusive production of red wine, with the focus on Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The elegant 2016 Estate Vineyards Syrah has a shy nose at first which majestically opens with time in the glass. Notes of olive tapenade, red berries, vanilla and milk chocolate show its fine complexity and depth. The palate is darker, with a wild streak and mineral core. A hint of roasted herbs and cured meats lead to fine grained tannins on a soft, fruity finish. This juicy medium-bodied Syrah drinks well in its youth but will keep nicely for 5 years.
