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 Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Proprietor Jean Engelbrecht has worked to establish Rust en Vrede as one of South Africa's premium red wine estates, with full-bodied and complex wines that reflect the uniqueness of the Helderberg terroir.
Deep crimson in color, Rust en Vrede Estate Red has aromas of cumin and cassis, supported by fresh blueberries and notes of shortbread on the finish. Lovely flavors of cherry and raspberry are supported by beautifully integrated tannins. Red licorice and savory flavors carry through on the palate with ample grip to the finish. This wine shows great structure, balance and offers beautiful complexity. (from the vintner)
