About this wine

Rust en Vrede Estate 2017 displays intense aromas of blackberry compote, layered with cassis and fresh plum with notes of vanilla, crème brûlée, and cedar. The pronounced bouquet follows through on to the palate, with powerful tannins and a rich, full mouthfeel. Intense berry fruit, with tightly-knit notes of liquorice, chocolate, lead pencil and tobacco add more layers to this wine, giving it refined complexity. The expressive fruit and spice balance the bold tannins, culminating in a dry, spicy finish. The depth and intensity of flavour bode well for excellent age-ability.

Rust en Vrede’s Estate Wine is their flagship blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot.  This wine is uniquely produced and blended in proportion to the vineyard’s plantings and shows the Rust en Vrede signature style.

Aging Potential: 10 to 15 years.

Serving temperature: 14 to 16° Celsius
