2007 Rust en Vrede Estate Red
Region: Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, South Africa
Deep, dark and opaque ruby red. Nose had lots of vegetal notes as well as some green peppers and a hint of iron. Heavy tannins (8.5/10) and full bodied. Very powerful wine that has a strong dry finish. Lingers for 10+ seconds. Delicious and we think it can easily go for another 10 years.
Red blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Shiraz, and 8% Merlot. Aged for 18 months in 85% French oak and 15% American oak.
2016 till 2026.
