The Rustenberg Estate was founded in 1682 and is nestled in the valley of the Simonsberg Mountain in South Africa’s premium wine region, Stellenbosch. Rustenberg’s rich heritage and ethos has been informed by many centuries of human influence striving to understand and work with nature to produce wines of distinct character true to their terroir, variety and informed style.
Dark berries and tobacco with a well-structured and lengthy palate. Although this wine spent 16 months on oak, only 10% of it was new and the result is a fleshiness and a touch of sweet spice rather than vanilla and smoke.
