Rust en Vrede Estate 2014 always one of the Cape's top red wines....

Tasting Notes

Dark currants, graphite and some loamy, earthiness gives this a great sense of place aromatically. Nicely concentrated but not big in body, medium fuller bodied, there’s a sense of refinement and elegance that speaks highly of its pedigree with beautifully finer tuned tannins that gives this a silky mouth feel while the finish, long and lingering, has an earthy, loamy component which compliments the black currant flavors perfectly. This is Just now starting to open up this has a good number of years of great drinking in front of it.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

4 ½ Stars 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Pioneer cab-shiraz flagship blend with near legendary status, 14 (62/31) has a splash of merlot, dense, plush black berry fruit & massive appeal. Poised & supple with velvet-gloved fist, elegant spiciness & lingering finish.
92 pts Wine Spectator 7/31/17
Very solid, with a graphite spine running from start to finish, while steeped black currant and blackberry fruit rumbles through. Loam, mint and tar notes fill out the background. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Drink now through 2022.
92 pts Jeb Dunnuck
Checking in as 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Shiraz, and the rest Merlot, from one of the oldest estates in South Africa (1694), the 2014 Estate Red was fermented and aged 18 months in French oak barrels. Deep ruby colored and mostly opaque, it offers a gorgeous bouquet of blackcurrants, tobacco, damp earth and hints of flowers. Beautifully concentrated, elegant, silky and refined on the palate, with impressive mid-palate concentration and fine tannin, it should keep for 10-15 years.



Winemaker Notes

Aromas of sour cherry, black forest and Christmas cake along with notes of perfumed jasmine. A savory palate of sweet spices, dark fruits and paprika. The long finish is well-structured.
Blend: 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Shiraz, and 7% Merlot.
