Rust en Vrede CWG Auction Estate 2017 (750ml bottles)
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah
The grapes were handpicked between 6 and 26 March. The Cabernet Sauvignon was sorted and fully destemmed and 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 and 30 days, followed by barrel maturation in 300 litre and 500 litre French oak barrels for 22 months. Bottled on 14 February 2019.
Tasting Notes: Cassis and raspberry aromas are complemented by savoury cedar and cinnamon spice. Cassis follows onto the palate along with fresh redcurrant. Chalky tannins balance the juicy, lingering mouthfeel.
