Rust en Vrede
Estate, 2003
12 (2 x 6) 750ml
As the flagship red states, Rust en Vrede dates back to 1694 and is today owned by Jean Engelbrecht. The fine Helderberg terroir produces concentrated and highly celebrated reds. Rust en Vrede was chosen by President Nelson Mandela to serve at the Nobel Peace Prize dinner and was the first red SA wine to be included in the Top 100 Wines of the World by Wine Spectator.The rich vintage of 2003 won a Veritas Double Gold as well as the Trophy for best red at the Winemakers Choice Awards.

Most recent releases of this prestigious cab-led blend to us somewhat less lustrous than pvs (though 02 rated 90 pts by WS). Current 03 usual seamless ensemble (60/30/10 cab/shiraz/merlot) but quieter, more pointedly fresh, unusually dense, oaky sweetness & tannins. 23 months French/American barrels, mainly new. 14.7% alc.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide (2007)

‘(Cabernet sauvignon with 30% shiraz and 10% merlot) Saturated, deep ruby-red. Tight nose suggests cassis, minerals, liquorice and sexy oak. Juicy, firm and primary; quite tightly wound and less pliant than the 2002 cabernet. But this wine's very intense dark fruit flavors suggest it will reward four or five years of aging. Plenty of oak tannins on the finish.’ – Stephen Tanzer 89+/100, Vinous.com (2007)
