Tasting Notes:

The Estate Vineyards Syrah is elegant in 2016. Medium- bodied with a purple rim, the nose is shy at first and majestically opens with time in the glass. Notes of olive tapenade, red berries, vanilla and milk chocolate show its fine complexity and depth. The palate is darker, with a wild streak and mineral core. A hint of roasted herbs and cured meats lead to fine grained tannins on a soft, fruity finish. This juicy Syrah drinks well in its youth but will keep nicely for 5 years.

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 Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Proprietor Jean Engelbrecht has worked to maintain 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 Stellenbosch terroir.

Pickingbeganonthe12th ofFebruary2016.Thewinterof2015 was extremely dry, with a maximum rainfall of 469mm, much lower than the average 712mm. The cool months after winter triggered a good bud break followed by immediate dry weather. These conditions resulted in a high number of bunches, producing smaller berries. The smaller berries balanced the effects of the dry conditions, which allowed for a normal and healthy production.

Malolactic fermentation in barrel. 18 months in 100% French oak (20% new) with medium toast. 300 litre (50%) & 500 litre (50%) barrels were used.
