Rust en Vrede Single Vineyards Syrah 2017
Established in 1694, Rust en Vrede is proud to be part of a remarkable three-hundred-year-old wine tradition. Since 1977 the Engelbrecht family has specialized in the exclusive production of red wine, with the focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. With the Rust en Vrede Single Vineyards Syrah 2017, dark, rich fruits and an intense floral perfume jump out of the glass. Complex aromas of violets and white blossoms combine with concentrated blueberry, vanilla and dark chocolate. This red wine has a bold, full palate as rich as the nose promises - intense blackberry and blueberry layered with dark chocolate, tobacco leaf and toast. Partial whole-bunch fermentation adds a savoury spiciness, and lively acidity balances the robust tannins, giving power and structure of the wine. Bold blueberry and toast flavours on the finish promise a good aging potential in this 100% Shiraz / Syrah.
