Brand Description

Rust en Vrede was the first Stellenbosch private winery in South Africa to specialize in the exclusive production of red wines. In the early 1980s, it also became the first producer in South Africa to make a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot, a wine now known as Rust en Vrede Estate. Run by Jean Engelbrecht. the ambassador of South African wines, and with the help of head winemaker Louis Strydom, the evolution of Rust en Vrede's wines and image were rewarded when Wine Spectator named the Rust en Vrede Estate to its Top 100 Wines four years in a row, a first for a South African winery

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS

Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
