Rust en Vrede Estate

South Africa 

  • Grape Variety

    Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah / Shiraz

  • Style

    Rich Full Bodied Reds

  • Alcohol By Volume


One of the genuine South African 'First Growth' estates, Jean Englebrecht's Rust en Vrede has produced a superlative 2007. This is like Cru Classé Bordeaux with added power and intensity, yet still the potential for ageing can clearly be seen in thewines structure and purity of fruit.

In the vineyard

Malolactic fermentation takes place in steel tanks and partly in barrels. Following fermentation, the Cabernet Sauvignon (6 clones), Shiraz (6 clones) and Merlot (2 clones) are separately vinified. Le ft to mature in mostly new 300L French and American oak barrels for 23 months, the wine is then blended and bottled. Only after a further 18 months of bottle-maturation is the wine released.

In the winery

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah blend
The soil is a mixture of weathered granite and a small percentage of clay, and is deep and red in colour. The soil shows good water retention, allowing for onl y moderate vine stress during dry years. Soil moisture is carefully monitored and supplemented by drip irrigation in very dry years only.

Press & Awards

  • Wine of the Week
    Tight-grained, featuring tangy maduro tobacco, black currant and black olive notes out front for now, while the core of darker fig paste, tar and gana che waits in reserve. A lovely roasted edge adds definition to the finish, while not sacrificing purity or drive. Should stretch out nicely in the cel lar. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Best from 2011 through 2014. Rated "Outstanding" 92 Points
