Rust en Vrede Syrah 2014

Rust en Vrede Syrah 2014 2017 Wiine Spectator Top 100 - #49

Tasting Notes

9/25/18
Impressive from start to finish, this was anointed a Wine Spectator Top 100 in 2017 (#49), and once you try it it’s easy to see why. A lifted nose with an assortment of savory characters, toast, and smoked meat, coriander and pepper spice, all playing off against vibrant darker fruit tones on the nose, creating a very captivating aromatic profile. The palate is medium fuller bodied, underscored with juicy acidity, coupled with sleek, polished tannins, all in perfect balance with the dark fruit flavors, with some interesting savory game and spice notes coming through on the long finish. Displaying vibrant fruit and good supporting structure this is just opening up and should drink impressively over the next 5 plus years.

92 pts Wine Spectator - 2017 Top 100 #49
This is well-rendered, with a core of bramble-edged boysenberry, blackberry and raspberry fruit laced with mouthwatering savory and anise notes. Shows judicious toast through the finish, as roasted apple wood details dance through, letting the fruit win out in the end. Drink now through 2024.
4 ½ Stars 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Stunningly vibrant 14 impresses with spice, chocolate, smoked meats & coriander notes. Showy but sophisticated, with concentrated black fruit styled for the long term. Hammy, perfume and pepper finish – truly attractive wine all round.
