Cellar for up to 15 years. Decant for up to an hour before serving.

While Rust en Vrede has been part of the Stellenbosch landscape for over 300 years, distinguished vintner Jean Engelbrecht truly brought the winery into the limelight. Since the 1990s Engelbrecht has been working tirelessly to establish South African wine as a premium product on the international market. Nothing reflects his determination better than the stunning range of wines made by Rust en Vrede winery.

Rust en Vrede is located in the Helderberg appellation, a mountainous, maritime-influenced terroir that stretches all the way to False Bay. Ever since the Engelbrechts purchased the property, there has been an emphasis placed on big, bold red wine. The vineyards are primarily planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, in the same proportions as this flagship red blend.

A distinctive bouquet of blackcurrant, cherry jam and subtle spice emerges on the nose of this deep crimson wine. The palate follows suit, with juicy flavours of blueberry and blackberry, underpinned by earthy notes of forest floor, cocoa and toffee. It has a well-rounded structure, fine, sprightly tannins, and a wonderfully soft mouthfeel. Further notes of leather and herbs can be found on the lingering finish. Pair this estate red blend with a tender rack of lamb, or a rich vegetable dish such as ratatouille.
