The Six Nations Wine Challenge, now in its 14th year, has crowned the Rustenberg Peter Barlow 2010 the best Cabernet Sauvignon of the show. The competition between Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Canada and the USA is judged by an international panel and recognises New World champions.

The Peter Barlow 2010 is produced from one of the greatest single Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the world, positioned on the famed slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain. With its proven track record and ageing potential, it is an essential addition to every cellar.

This wine offers remarkable value; as a regular award winner, it is South Africa’s most consistent and finest Cabernet Sauvignon. Now almost sold out, we have a small parcel available.

Tasting notes:

Rustenberg Peter Barlow 2010 – R 320
Dense, compact and quite backward, even at six years of age, this pure Cabernet Sauvignon always reminds me of the structure of a Saint Estèphe. Leafy, firm and strapping, with lots of toasty oak and a core of dark, chocolatey fruit. Drink: 2016-20. – Tim Atkin Report 2016
