Established in 1694, Rust en Vrede has specialised in the exclusive production of red wine, with the focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
Together in the bottle, Rust en Vrede’s two single vineyards – Syrah (majority) and Cabernet Sauvignon – create outstanding harmony. This expressive wine has violets, black pepper and fresh black cherries on the nose, along with leather, black olives, turned earth and liquorice. It has a powerful palate that matches the nose in both intensity and depth, showing plush dark fruit and oak spice, intermingled with rooibos tea, cured meat and dried herbs. The immense tannin structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon and fruit and spice form the Syrah ensure that this wine will age for a decade or two from vintage.
