The Rustenburg Wine Estate has long been considered one of the finest Stellenbosch producers. Their flagship Peter Barlow Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from one of the greatest single Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the world. Positioned on the famed slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, it has a proven track record. With remarkable ageing potential, the single vineyard Peter Barlow continues to offer great value and is a sure investment opportunity.
‘So what about the 2011? The Peter Barlow 2011 impresses us with svelte tannins, rich glorious fruit, whilst the oaking adds to an impression of luxury and opulence. Drinking beautifully now, the 2011 has incredible balance! There is a delightful lift that serves as the perfect foil to any sense of largesse. All you are left with is a full, seductive palate that lingers but stays fresh and is everything that great modern Cabernet Sauvignon has to offer. This delicious wine is more approachable than the recent 2009 and 2010 vintages, nonetheless it will mature easily over 10 to 15 years. Best drunk 2017 to 2028 and beyond. Sure to garner top awards once rated.’ – James Pietersen (Jan 2017 )
