Recognised globally as one of South Africas top five wine estates, Rustenberg is also one of the oldest in the Cape. In 1941 the Rustenberg Farm, which sits 6km north of Stellenbosch, was bought by Peter Barlow. Vineyards producing the grapes for Rustenberg wines climb the rich red slopes of the Simonsberg and Helderberg; a range of slopes and aspects allows site-specific plantings that enhance varietal characteristics. With a long and very proud history of producing exceptional wines, Rustenbergs winemaking style is simple: produce quality wines true to the style of the estate and the brand. Merlot has been a mainstay red grape variety on Rustenberg since the late 1970s where its lead role has been to complement Cabernet Sauvignon in blends. Rich aromas of blackberries, cassis, eucalyptus and dark chocolate follow through to a smooth palate that is both balanced and well-rounded with fine grained tannins.
