Rust En Verde Shiraz South Africa Red Shiraz 003 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Wine Spectator: Dark and a touch wild, with briar, tapenade and macerated currant notes pushed by briary texture. Muscular and mouthfilling, with fig and coffee chiming in on the finish. Should settle in nicely with some cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Drink now through 2012. 600 cases made. (6/15/09)

For 315 years Rust en Vrede has stood peacefully among the vineyards of Stellenbosch. Through centuries there were periods when wine was produced, but for the last 32 years our family have specialized in producing only red wine with the focus on Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot. Many accolades have been bestowed upon the estate and some of the more memorable were when Rust en Vrede was chosen by President Nelson Mandela to be served at the Nobel Peace Prize dinner, hosting the King and Queen of Denmark for a lunch with my family at the Manor House, and when Rust en Vrede was nominated as the first South African red wine in the Top 100 Wines of the World. This honour was repeated for four consecutive years. Today Rust en Vrede continues to be a fine example of what Stellenbosch is all about and we will strive to be a driving force in promoting our wines, our region and ultimately our country. You are always welcome at Rust en Vrede and on behalf of my family and colleagues, we are looking forward to your visit. Read less

Estate Stellenbosch 2005 - Rust en Vrede : Estate 2005 - Rotwein von Rust en Vrede Das intensive Karminrot funkelt im Glas und ein von der Reife im Eichenfass beeindruckendes Bukett erfreut die Nase. Dieser wuchtige und konzentrierte Rotwein begeistert mit Aromen von Kaffee, Karamell und weihnachtlichem Gebäck. Am Gaumen wirkt er sehr komplex und wird von dunklen Früchten und würzigen Noten getragen. Der Estate 2005 ist ein sehr kraftvoller Wein mit einem großen Alterungspotential und kann besonders zu gebratenem Fleisch, Wild und Käse empfohlen werden. Er sollte eine Stunde vor dem Genießen belüftet werden.   Weingut: Rust-en-VredeLand: SüdafrikaRegion: StellenboschRebsorten: 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Shiraz, 13% MerlotAlkoholgehalt: 15,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,0 g/lRestsüße: 3,75 g/lInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °CLagerfähigkeit: 10 - 15 Jahre ab JahrgangFaßreife: in Barriques gereift (23 Monate) Rotwein > Südafrika > Stellenbosch

Rust-en-Vrede Shiraz 2005: Dieser rebsortenreine Rotwein mit dem typisch rauchigen Charakter ist das Markenzeichen des Weinguts Rust en Vrede. Der Shiraz präsentiert sich sehr vielfältig, langlebig und tiefdunkel im Glas. Das Bukett ist herrlich fruchtig und erinnert zudem an Schokolade und eine Zigarrenkiste. Am Gaumen zeigt sich dieser Wein mit einer opulenten Fruchtfülle und endet in einem saftigen weichen Finale.
