Tasting notes:
'Grapes from 1972 bushvine vineyard. Matured for 24 months in 225-litre barrels, 62% new. Red and black fruit, dried herbs, earth, vanilla and liquorice on the nose. Rich and broad on the palate but not short of freshness, the tannins fine and mouth-coating. Old school in style but immensely satisfying' – Winemag Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report 2020, Top 10

'Grapes for this wine come from an unusually old 1972 bush vine vineyard. It is matured for 24 months in 225-litre barrels, 62% new. Red and black fruit, dried herbs, earth, vanilla and liquorice on the nose. Rich and broad on the palate but not short of freshness, the tannins fine and mouthcoating. Old school in style but immensely satisfying. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025.' – Decanter, 92/100

About Stellenrust:
Stellenrust was established in 1928 and has ever since produced some of the most superb quality wines that the Stellenbosch region from South Africa can offer. It consists of about 400ha (200ha planted) of which half is stretched over the Golden Triangle area of Stellenbosch, internationally recognised for some of the best red wine soil in South Africa. The other half is situated high up in the Bottelary Hills, renowned for its cool climate and late afternoon sea breezes swooping in from Cape Town to nurture both excellent white and red wines.
