Cape Winemakers Guild

Rust en Vrede CWG Auction Estate 2016

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah

The grapes were hand-picked between 12 February and 26 March. The Cabernet Sauvignon was sorted and fully destemmed. The Syrah was partially destemmed. Individual parcel and grape components were vinified separately. Fermentation took place in open-top fermenters and the cap was manually punched-down four times, daily. The maceration period varied between 14 to 24 days, this was followed by barrel maturation in 300 litre and 500 litre French oak barrels for 22 months. Bottled on 7 February 2018.

Tasting Notes: Cassis and black cherry aromas are complemented by cedar and pepper spice. Fresh flavours of red currant and liquorice persist. Chalky tannins balance the juicy mouthfeel and evolve into a firm and dry finish.

Ready for drinking from 2022 to 2026.

This wine is packed in a wooden box.
