About this Item

2015 Estate
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Situated on the scenic slopes of the Helderberg mountain, Rust en Vrede is one of Stellenbosch’s oldest estates, dating back to 1694 and is today owned by Jean Engelbrecht. The fine Helderberg terroir produces concentrated and highly celebrated reds.

The Estate blend is the emblematic wine of Rust en Vrede. The blend is made up of the proportions of varieties planted on Rust en Vrede, making it the most honest reflection of our terroir.

Critics Ratings

‘Iconic Cabernet-Syrah since 88, still one of Cape’s jewels. Dense, concentrated black fruit on 2015 (with 9% Merlot) shows layers of complexity and detail: heady fynbos, taut earthiness, supple texture. Beautifully crafted for cellaring, like 2014 (4.5 stars, 92 points). Larger formats up to 27L available.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2019, 5* (95 points)

‘Estate is a red blend taken from across the slope of the Helderberg. Marrying Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah with 9% Merlot, it’s a superb wine from a truly great vintage. Damson, cassis and tobacco leaf notes, tangy acidity and filigree tannins: what’s not to like. 2022-30.’ - Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 94/100
