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

 

An impressive and large-scaled wine that offers loads of currant paste, braised fig, beef, roasted earth, tar and graphite notes, all backed by grilled herb, aged tobacco and bittersweet cocoa on the finish. Very dense, but the fruit and tug of earth should merge fully with cellaring. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon ... 300 cases made.’  Wine Spectator, 93/100
