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. The 1694 is a luxurious, powerful blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon and is made in miniscule quantities.

Critics Ratings

‘Lush and layered, with a broad swath of mocha-coated blackberry, plum and blueberry paste flavors, followed by notes of ganache and Christmas pudding on the finish. Hedonistic, but kept honest by a good, well-buried graphite spine.'  Wine Spectator, 92/100

‘A blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon matured entirely in new French oak for 18 months (not that you notice), the 2010 “1694” Classification has a gorgeous, opulent bouquet with pure black cherries, fresh prune and vanilla scents that are very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannins, well-judged acidity and a satin-textured finish that is pure class. Now this is how to do top-class Stellenbosch.’ -  Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 93/100 (Oct 2014)
