Professional Wine Reviews for Rust En Vrede Syrah Estate Vineyards 2014

Rated 92 by Wine Spectator
TOP 100 OF 2017 #49 - This is well-rendered, with a core of bramble-edged boysenberry, blackberry and raspberry fruit laced with mouthwatering savory and anise notes. Shows judicious toast through the finish, as roasted apple wood details dance through, letting the fruit win out in the end. Drink now through 2024. 3,540 cases made.
Rated 92 by Wine & Spirits
This has the floral, barnyard notes that make northern Rh?ne syrah so compelling. They appear here in a wine that’s beefy and mineral-black, with smoky tannins firming up its satin texture. Concentrated yet elegant, this grows on warm, north-facing slopes in Helderberg, on well-drained soils of granite and sandstone.

Winery Rust En Vrede

Region: Coastal Region

The coastal region of South Africa is a wonderful place for viticulture. With gorgeously long, hot summer days, tempered by brisk oceanic winds, the grapevines can grow healthily, the fruit can ripen fully, and beautiful wines of great character and flavor can be made. For several hundred years now, the coastal region of South Africa has proven itself to be a highly important wine region, capable of supporting many grape varietals, suitable for still, fortified and sparkling wines. Today, the most popular grapes by far are Chenin Blanc, which produces the most recognizable wines of South Africa. However, also popular are many of the Bordeaux varieties of red and white grape, along with relative newcomers, such as Pinotage, which grow exceptionally well in the coastal terroir.

Country: South Africa

Perhaps the most famous and well respected of all the wine regions in South Africa is that of Constantia, which holds many of the oldest and most traditional wineries in the country. Here, the temperate climate receives the Atlantic winds which cool the vineyards, and the fertile soil allows the grapes to grow to full ripeness, resulting in highly flavorful wines which are enjoyed around the world. Whilst Sauvignon Blanc varietals make up the most widely exported wines of this region, the rest of the country produces a huge and impressive range of wines, made up from varietals native to many different European countries. From excellent Champagne style sparkling wines, to aromatic fortified examples, fruity reds and refreshing whites, South Africa continues to impress and surprise, with modern techniques and technologies leading the way and producing exceptional results.
