Rust En Vrede Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

COLOR Deep opaque AROMA Cassis and red currant aromas are infused with hints of floral characteristics. TASTE A firm tannin structure is in balance with red fruit and liquorice flavors supported by a subtle oak component which fills the mid palate and carries through to the finish. Length/Type of Fermentation: Primary fermentation took 7 days, followed by 14-21 days maceration. Mololactic fermentation took place in barrels. Length/Type of Aging: The wine was left to mature for 18 months in French oak followed by bottle aging for 9 months before release.

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
