RUST EN VREDE Shiraz 2011

Mathew Castle about the RV Shiraz:

I'm clearly a Shiraz fan, and possibly a Rust en Vrede fan too so would it surprise you to hear that this is my favourite

wine in the whole world. Something about it just blows my mind. I feel a warmth and happiness flowing through my

body from the first sip. Coenie whats those funny green weeds growing in the vineyard? It has the distinctive smokyness

and subtle spice of a great Shiraz.


But dont listen to me - who am I to tell you what YOU like. Try it for yourself and if by some chance you dont like it - well then all the more left for me.


Winemaker Coenie Snyman's Tasting Notes:

Beautiful expressive aromas of deep plum and red fruit are prominent in this wine, with a subtle undertone of fresh spice.

Juicy red fruit show exceptional follow-through from the nose. A rich mid-palate mouth feel with a well-rounded lengthy finish.


Colour : Bright opaque.

Aroma : Red fruit and toffee aromas are prominent, with hints of white pepper and spice.

Palate : A big powerful, fruit driven wine, with smooth chocolate flavours. Great mid palate with seamless integration

that leads up to a lengthy harmonious finish.

Vinification: Fermented in open tank fermentors and pumped over five times per day. Each Shiraz clone (6) sees a

unique treatment of yeast and wood. Matured fifty percent in new French oak and fifty percent American oak

(half new and half second fill), the wood maturation lasts 18 months. After blending the wine undergoes

bottle-maturation for a further eighteen months.
