'Intense detail, from hand sorting to clones vinified separately. 2018 intricate & concentrated, a thrilling reveal of flavours - violets, plums, cherries, sandalwood, spice. Tense acidity & fine tannins balance ripe fruit & almost 15% alcohol, a keenness between structure & freshness. 22 months French oak, 50% new.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'From a block planted in 2000 to two clones, namely 46C and CS163. Matured for 22 months in 300-litre French oak barrels, 50% new. Red and black berries, violets, some leafiness and pencil shavings on the nose. The palate has wonderful intensity and structure – great purity of fruit, lovely freshness and firm but fine tannins, the finish long and dry. A wine with plenty of energy and detail for all its depth.' – Winemag Prescient Top 20 Wines South Africa 2021 Report, Best Cabernet Sauvignon (94/100)

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.
