On the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain since 1682, lies the iconic Rustenberg Estate. In 1945 the farm was purchased by industrialist Peter Barlow and today it is owned by his son Simon and grandson Murray. This site-specific Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the oldest vineyard on the estate, high up on the Simonsberg. It is truly one of South Africa’s best Cabernet Sauvignons and has the track record to age for decades, especially in a great vintage like 2005.

 

‘Good full ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of cassis, licorice and wild spices, with complementary hints of chocolate and mocha. Sweet, creamy and deep, with a layered, mouthfilling quality to the cassis and cigar box flavors. Remarkably lush wine for this structured vintage ... I'd give this at least another couple of years before pulling the cork; it should evolve at least through the early 2020s.’  Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com, 94/100
