'Rich, round, and fleshy. Ripe and exotic with apple crumble and mandarins through to oak and spun sugar. A very smart, well-honed creation.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 96/100 (Gold)

'Characters of ripe citrus, melon and peach with great minerality, rounded out by well-judged oaking. A very complex wine with a long and creamy finish and a good acid backbone. Aging potential: 10+ years from vintage under ideal cellaring conditions.' – Winemaker

About Five Soldiers:
'The Five Soldiers vineyard is named after five tall stone pine trees called the 'Five Soldiers' that tower over this site. Carefully selected Chardonnay bunches from this area are hand harvested for this special wine and then given royal treatment in the cellar. The final product is a very complex full-bodied wine, approachable in its youth however careful cellaring will exhibit the depth of the wine’s complexity and will reward patience.' – Winemaker

Producer information Rustenberg, located in the Simonsberg Mountain valley, was founded in 1682. In 1941, Peter and Pamela Barlow bought Rustenberg, as well as another farm which had originally been a part of Rustenberg. They joined the two properties and have now been running Rustenberg for over 70 years. Rustenberg is a leading producer of iconic, long-ageing wines. Stellenbosch is home to some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon terroir in the world but very few sites are more special than Rustenberg’s Peter Barlow single vineyard.
