Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah and 10% Merlot

Tasting notes:
'Matured for 22 months in French oak, 40% new. Beguiling aromatics of red and black berries, some leafiness, violets, earth, vanilla and spice while the palate displays dense fruit, fresh acidity and firm but fine tannins – succulent on entry before a finish is long and dry. Great richness without sacrificing balance.' – Winemag Prescient Signature Red Blend Report 2020, Top 10

'Powerful, plush, bold and full-bodied, this is a quintessential central Helderberg red made from Cabernet Sauvignon with 48% Syrah and Merlot and aged in 40% new wood. Smoky plum, fig and damson flavours are supported by compact tannins and enough acidity and minerality for balance. Drink 2022-29.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

'Intense aromas of blackberry compote with cassis and fresh plum are layered 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. Aging Potential: 10 to 15 years.' – Winemaker

Alc: 14.8% | RS: 2.2 g/L | TA: 5.8 g/L | PH: 3.54

About Rust en Vrede:
Rust en Vrede was established in 1694 but since 1977 has followed a ‘red wine only’ approach, focusing on Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. This approach has allowed them to fine tune their vineyards while keeping things simple and focused. Coenie Snyman, winemaker at Rust en Vrede since 2007, has quietly tweaked the style of their wines and brought more freshness and elegance to these reds while, most importantly, retaining their power. Rust en Vrede has received many accolades over the years but cites their most memorable as having their wine chosen by President Nelson Mandela to be served at the Nobel Peace Prize dinner.
