Reviews of Rustenberg Stellenbosch Shiraz 2017
- The aromas are initially savoury and meaty, developing into a very concentrated and complex perfume with prominent spicy notes of cloves, cinnamon and violets.
- The palate entry exhibits tremendous concentration of flavour and has gratifying length.
- The heat wave that began in February 2009 caused rapid sugar ripeness, so judicious irrigation regimes had to be implemented in order to maintain a healthy canopy during the late ripening period. A cool spring and early summer made for an excellent vintage, particularly for the early-ripening varieties.
- Ageing Potential - 8 - 10 years from vintage.
Brilliant cherry red, high layer. This wine from Rustenberg smells like red fruit compote. This wine felt quite light on the tongue.
This rather mild wine pairs perfectly with roast lamb, I already tried it.
