Cape Winemakers Guild

Rust en Vrede CWG Estate 2011

The crop ripened simultaneously and the Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon were picked in 3 days in the first week of March. The Petit Verdot was harvested 10 days later. The grapes were fully destalked and sorted. The components were vinified and matured separately. During fermentation, in open fermenters, the cap was punched down 4 times a day. Maceration for 7-25 days was followed by 22 month maturation in barrels. Bottled on 14 February 2013. Tasting Notes: Vibrant, deep ruby. Densely packed fruit aromas of cassis and raspberry. Dark chocolate and cedar with violets and spice complete. Dark currant with tobacco delivers a muscular punch. The lengthy finish shows dark fruit and savoury flavour. Rich style with powerful fruit and dry finish. This wine is packed in wooden boxes.
