Rust En Vrede Estate Wine is grown on Tukulu soil that is derived from Helderberg granite. It is a mixture of decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone – deep and red in colour, showing good water retention which allows for only moderate vine stress during dry years.

Following fermentation, the Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot grapes were vinified separately. They were matured in 85% French and 15% American oak barrels for 18 months, and then for a further 12 months in the bottle before release.
