    Winemaker's Notes:

    First to specialeze in the exclusive production of red wine only, Rust en Vrede is now South Africa's Premium red wine estate. Our full-bodied, new-oak matured wines are a manifestation of the supremacy of the Stellenbosch region when it comes to the making of truly great red wines. Rust en Vrede is proud to be part of this and continues to pursue the excellence that has characterized wines from Stellenbosh and spcifically our private estates, which undoubtedly are the hearbeat of this magnificent region.

    A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Shiraz, and 10% Merlot aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels, then aged for another 18 months in the bottle before release.

    An intense, black color in the glass. Initial earthiness opens up to an array of berry flavors and a touch of eucalyptus. Rich, full-bodied and complex in character. Chewy and savoury, yet delicate and refined, finishing with a pleasant lingering aftertaste of roasted almonds. Truly a wine with finesse.
