89 rating Vinous Media June 2015 (100% Cabernet from younger vineyards in warmer sites): "Good bright, dark red. Aromas of redcurrant and licorice accented by herbs. Juicy and tight in the mouth, with dark fruit and fresh herb flavors dominating. This vibrant, firmly tannic wine could use a bit more flesh." Stephen Tanzer

INTRODUCTION Stellenbosch and the Simonsberg Mountain range are synonymous with the production of great Cabernet Sauvignon. Just over one third of Rustenberg's vineyard plantings are dedicated to this variety and it is used through all of our blended red wines, and the famous site specific Peter Barlow. The Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon is made in a more fruit forward and medium bodied style and is accessible in its youth but will benefit from further bottle age. We recommend decanting this wine before serving. VINTAGE The vines emerged from a cold, wet Winter and enjoyed even budding in the Spring of 2012. Strong winds in early Summer affected the yields and canopies of some varieties but cool and consistent weather in early 2013 resulted in later than usual ripening. The cool growing season meant the grapes reaching their flavour ripeness with low sugars resulting in medium-bodied, elegant wines being produced.
