About this Item

2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Established In 1999 as a joint venture partnership between world famous golfer, Ernie Els, and Jean Engelbrecht of Rust & Vrede. Els naturally chose Stellenbosch, South Africa's most storied wine region, to produce his wines and they brought on the award-winning Louis Strydom to oversee winemaking.

Provenance

Wine Cellar Private Client

Critics Ratings

'Fleshy and inviting, showing layers of cassis, raspberry and blackberry paste inlaid with anise, singed apple wood and mint notes. Nice charcoal frame on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2023.' - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 92/100 (Dec 2017)

'While this is currently slightly tight and closed, it shows the structure and elements to present a complete and well-balanced wine with a little time. Scents of charred plum skin, dark chocolate, cigar box and roast beef dance in the bouquet, while the bold, firm palate offers flavors of black fruit skin, cassis and char. Drink 2019–2022.' - Lauren Buzzeo, Wine Enthusiast, 91/100 (Mar 2018)

'Neatly sculpted with French oak & fine tannin, 2015’s layers of fruit are dark & delicious, laced with leather & earth. Still tight - deserves more time to develop. Decant if broaching now. Includes splash petit verdot, as next.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2018, 4.5* (92/100)
