'Deep crimson with well-defined red and black cherry prominent on the nose. Dark chocolate, cedar and pencil shavings bring complexity and typicity to this Helderberg Cabernet. The palate is structured with fresh acidity and bold tannins that will balance each other well over time. Cherry notes carry through on the palate, growing in intensity and complexity with layered cassis, blackberry, liquorice and a pinch of black pepper. Ageing Potential: 10 to 15 years.' – Coenie Snyman, Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2018 vintage:
'Previously called just by the variety name. A beneficial reining in of oak for 2018 (20% new & 18 months vs 2017’s 50% & 22) preserves the plush styling & velvet tannins that let you know you’re in the house of R&V, underpins a real stoniness to the aromas, flinty graphite alongside concentrated cassis, cherry pip & dark floral perfume.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (92/100)

'The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyards has an attractive nose of brambly black fruit, singed leather, menthol and licorice, quite contained and focused. The palate is a little chewy on the entry, but then it settles down, offering blackberry and raspberry fruit mixed with hoisin and star anise, and a pinch of white pepper toward the finish. Enjoy this over the next decade. Drink 2021-2031.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 90/100

Producer information 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.
