Rustenberg Shiraz 2017
Shiraz is a fairly newly introduced variety to Rustenberg, first planted in the late 1990’s on warm West-facing slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain it has rapidly made its mark in a number of wines and blends. The Stellenbosch Shiraz exhibits all the hallmarks of great Shiraz: red and dark fruits and a touch of spice in a wine that is medium bodied,
approachable and designed to be enjoyed in its youth. We recommend decanting this wine before serving.
The Stellenbosch Shiraz is comprised of a blend of fruit from four different vineyards, aiming for a pleasing ripeness but avoiding overripe “porty” characters. Red fruits are emphasised with a slightly sweeter profile than the more savoury Syrah.
This Shiraz has plenty of natural brambly red and black fruit on the well-defined nose. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine line of acidity, crisp tannins and expressive red berry fruit mixed with spice and cloves on the finish.
Aging Potential Designed for early drinking +7 years from vintage.
