Single Vineyard Syrah 2015, Rust en Vrede

£78.00 per bottle

About this wine

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 Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The 2015 Single Vineyard Syrah’s floral notes extend to upfront black and red fruit aromas that are well supported by savoury and salty hints of dark chocolate, cinnamon and nutmeg spice.  The palate is fruit forward with flavours of strawberries, cherries and mocha which bring this wine together well.  The wine has a beautifully long clean, dry finish whilst the soft velvety tannins are well integrated with seamless natural acidity.

Ageing Potential: 10 to 15 years

Serving temperature: 14 to 16° Celsius.

    string(832) "Also known as Syrah, Shiraz was the variety which introduced the world to the concentrated and masculine wines of 1990s’ Australia. Here in the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale it produces wines of great density and richness. In South Africa there tends to be more structure and freshness with earthy tannins. It is a variety which alters in the bottle very much as a result of the individual winemaker’s philosophy, as well as reflecting the unique terroir of the estates. Great with oak, it offers lavender, kirsch, black cherry and cured meat aromas and flavours. In its native Northern Rhône it is famous for the wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, whilst in the New World can lay claim to providing Australia with its two most famous wines; Henschke’s Hill of Grace and Penfold’s Grange."
