2017 MERLOT, Rust En Vrede. Stellenbosch, South Africa
Alcohol Percentage: 14.5%
Area: Situated just south east of the town of Stellenbosch, in the Helderberg sub-region, on granite / shale soils.
Grape Variety: 100% Merlot, matured for 14 months in French oak.
Producer: Rust en Vrede was established in 1694 and bought by the Engelbrecht family in 1977. The original farm buildings were built between 1780 and 1825. Current owner Jean Engelbrecht has built a modern cellar and one of the most prestigious restaurants in South Africa - certainly worth a visit.
Old Bridge Rating: Delivers everything you could want from a Merlot - generous ripeness, rounded texture, but enough tannin and concentration to be a serious food wine.
