Rust & Vrede Estate Cabernet
Deep crimson with well-defined red and black cherry are prominent on the nose. Dark chocolate, cedar and pencil shavings bring complexity and typicity to this Helderberg Cabernet. The palate is structured with fresh acidity and bold tannins that will balance each other well over time. Cherry notes carry through on the palate, growing in intensity and complexity with layered cassis, blackberry, liquorice and a pinch of black pepper.
