90 Pts Wine Enthusiast
"Savory, luscious and aromatic, with waves of dark chocolate, spice and wild berries, this wine is meaty and rich in character with a spin of smoke. Blended with a touch of MourvÃ¨dre and Viognier for added depth, itâs smooth but sturdy and has aging potential." 90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Deep purple inky hues. The aromas start off savory and meaty, after which they develop a very concentrated and complex perfume and spice notes with cloves, cinnamon and violets being prominent. The palate entry exhibits tremendous concentration of flavor and fruit tannin, which surprisingly finishes fresh and dry." -Winery
"Cold dry winter with low rainfall followed by a moderate summer with above average rainfall and the occasional heat wave. Naturally fermented with aerated pumpovers followed with 2 weeks extended maceration and Malolactic Fermentation in 40% new and 60% 2nd fill French 225 Liter barrels. After 20 months the wine was racked out the oak barrels and bottled." -WInemaker
"Rustenberg has a wine-growing history dating back to 1682, when Roelof Pasman from Meurs, near the Rhine, recognised its wine-growing potential. By 1781 some 3000 cases of wine were produced on the farm. Production doubled by the end of the century and a new cellar was built. Wine has been bottled at this cellar for an unbroken period since 1892."
"In the early 1800s Rustenberg was divided by owner Jacob Eksteen and a section was given to his son-in-law, who named it Schoongezicht and sold it soon after. Rustenberg and Schoongezicht were at their peak around 1812, with beautiful homesteads and flourishing vineyards. But by mid-century, recession coupled with disease in the vines, brought bankruptcy and dispossession."
"Schoongezicht was rescued in 1892 by John X Merriman (who was to become Prime Minister of the Cape), and Rustenberg by his brother-in-law Sir Jacob Barry. Together they revitalised the farms. Fruit was sent to Covent Garden; new vines were grafted onto disease-resistant American rootstock; wines were exported to England and the Continent - and even found in Siberia."
"In 1941 Peter and Pamela Barlow bought Rustenberg, later acquiring Schoongezicht and reuniting the properties. Their son Simon took over the running of the farm in 1987. The Barlows have been at Rustenberg for over 60 years: the longest period any one family has owned the farm." -Winery
