Big, bold, serious and built to age in bottle, this is a compact, weighty Cabernet Sauvignon with 70% new oak, firmish tannins and a core of dark damson and cassis fruit complemented by notes of mocha, coffee bean and refreshing acidity. 2020-28'. – Tim Atkin, Special South Africa Report 2017, 92/100

The name of this wine pays tribute to the man who recognized the potential of Rustenberg, and bought the farm in 1941, reuniting the property, restoring its buildings and investing in its potential to make world class wines. The oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard on the estate is named the Peter Barlow block and consistently produces powerful, long-lived Cabernet Sauvignon that is given the best possible treatment in the cellar. Peter's family now continues his legacy. We recommend decanting this wine before serving.

Tasting notes:
Medium bodied in style with less grunt and weight than some previous vintages, but with a fine balance and composure. Again a small vintage due to the constant rehabilitation of the Peter Barlow vineyard. Drink 2018 - 2025. There will be no 2014 release.
