Our top red wine from Vrede en Lust, named after Dana and Etienne’s late grandfather.
He was a long term Vice President of the International Rugby Board, played a major role in their lives and introduced them to fine wines.
This wine is an elegant New World Style Bordeaux blend, incorporating the classical varietals and showcasing abundant fruit, well balanced with oak.
Dominant flavours of berry aromas, followed by pencil shavings and cedar on the nose. Layers of flavours with clean lines. A wonderful balance between the elegance of the wine and the ripeness of the fruit.
Very primary on the nose – red and black fruit, tobacco and vanilla plus a little earthiness. Full bodied with pure fruit, bright acidity and fine tannins, the finish is long and savory. Poised and understated, this has a good future ahead of it.
Blend information: Cabernet Sauvignon 64%, Merlot 44%, Petit Verdot 5%, Malbec 5%
