Rustenberg, Peter Barlow, Cabernet Sauvignon
The “Peter Barlow” derives its name from the man who bought the property in 1941 and lovingly restored it to become a South African icon in the wine industry. Being made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the oldest vineyard on the estate, the Peter Barlow is a rich, robust varietal example of the exceptional quality and age-ability of Cabernet made on the Estate and in the Simonsberg region. A highly collected wine which will age gracefully under the correct cellaring conditions.
Beautiful legs, lingering fruit and deep coffee bean flavours. The cold wet Winter of 2014 started early and ended late, which is ideal for the vineyards’ dormancy; however an unseasonably cool Spring resulted in the vines going into Summer with 10 to 40% less crop than usual. The remainder of the season was warm and dry resulting in one of the earliest harvests on record.
