An incredible wine begging for a spot in your collection! The Rust En Vrede Estate is a stand-out wine with a commanding presence. This red blend displays a beautiful deep crimson red colour with a very Shiraz-dominant nose that brandishes upfront aromas of cumin and cedar, supported by less prominent tobacco and cigar box scents. On the palate it is reminiscent of an Old World-style wine, showcasing good complexity and typical plum, mulberry and blackberry flavours.

Their stunning reputation led the late president Nelson Mandela to select Rust en Vrede wines as the only to be served at a Nobel Peace Prize dinner.
