Rust en Vrede Wines Score 90+ in Wine Spectator
The November 30, 2015, issue of Wine Spectator includes two 90+ scores for wines from the Rust en Vrede portfolio. Here are the reviews by South Africa specialist James Molesworth.
92 points Rust en Vrede Stellenbosch 2012
“Polished in feel, offering blackberry and black currant confiture notes that stream through, gilded with anise and espresso accents. A charcoal hint hangs in the background, but the fruit holds center stage. Nicely done. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Drink now through 2019.”
91 points Rust en Vrede Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch 2013
“A delicious red, exhibiting ripe red currant, raspberry and plum fruit laced with a bright savory note. Everything courses through the alder-edged finish. Focused and energetic. Drink now through 2020.”
