Rust en Vrede

Rust en Vrede Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Rust en Vrede Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 91 pts Wine Spectator & 4 ½ Stars 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Tasting Notes

The strength of the vintage is in fine form here. This showcases beautiful varietal expression on a medium fuller frame, with concentrated juicy fruit flavors of red currant, plum and bitter cherry nuanced with some light tobacco spice and a hint of dark chocolate that surfaces up through on the lingering finish. Finer grained tannins and juicy acidity gives this a nice structural foundation that says this should show well over the next 5 plus years quite easily.

Food Accompaniments

Lamb chops, New York steak


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts James Suckling June 2018
Strawberries, raspberries, dried mint and eucalyptus. Medium body, good grip from the tannins, a fine line of acidity and a medium-chewy finish.
91 pts Wine Spectator 12/15/17
Sleek and focused, with a delicious beam of red currant and bitter cherry preserves lined with mouthwatering savory and tobacco hints. An iron spine holds the finish and adds length. Drink now through 2021.
4 ½ Stars 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Ripe, dense & concentrated, impressive 15 seduces with precise detail & succulently rich fruit. Just enough edgy acidity & herbaceous highlights cosseted in floral-scented, earthy cassis. Blossoms with time in the glass or decanting.



Winemaker Notes

Oak:
Malolactic Fermentation in barrel.
18months in 100% french oak with medium toast.

Tasting Notes
Dark ruby. Flavours of Ripe plum, blackcurrant, mocha and dark chocolate with hints of sweet caramel biscuit form a rich and powerful character. The palate shows wonderful complexity with juicy, fruit driven flavours that integrate with smooth velvety tannins to create a bold elegant finish.
