Discover More About Our Products

The name for this red wine comes from a former owner-winemaker of the estate, the charismatic Reginald Merriman Nicholson. Reg Nicholson lived and worked on the farm for 30 years and was the creator of Rustenberg's famous "Dry Red" wine.

Just as the Dry Red was an unconventional blend, the RM Nicholson is a new world style blend of classic varieties that would typically not be combined. The result is a blend of Bordeaux and Rhone varietals aiming to express the typicity of each vintage, unrestrained by convention to create a great wine.

Rustenberg Stellenbosch R M Nicholson 2018 won a gold medal in the 2020 Michelangelo International Wine & Spirit Awards.

Ageing potential of up to 10 years from vintage under ideal cellaring conditions.

Vi köpte den i Rustenberg.
Brunaktigt röd. Denna Cabernet Franc var rätt kaffefärgad. Trevligt , tät , varm i munnen.
