Product description

 

For 315 years Rust en Vrede has stood peacefully among the vineyards of Stellenbosch. Through centuries there were periods when wine was produced, but for the last 37 years our family have specialized in producing only red wine with the focus on Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot. “The 2013 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, matured in French oak, has a straightforward, minty nose with simple blackberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, fleshy in the mouth with seamless tannin. The acidity here is nicely judged, gently gripping the mouth with quite lush red berry fruit laced with Earl Grey and bay leaf on the finish. It might lack varietal character but it is well balanced.”
