rustenberg peter barlow 2007

“The flagship 2007 Peter Barlow is a pure Cabernet Sauvignon from vines planted in 1990. The wine was raised in 64% new oak, the remainder 2nd and 3rd fill. It has an intriguing bouquet of roasted herbs, tobacco and a touch of dark chocolate and good definition. The palate is very well balanced with ripe plum and black currant on the entry. The black fruit is interlaced with dried herbs and fresh tobacco with firm and grippy tannins. It displays impressive weight towards the bold, structured finish and this 2007 is only just beginning to show what it can do. Drink 2014-2022.” Score – 93 (Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate)

“Rustenberg is one of South Africa’s oldest estates with a history dating back to 1682, and by 1781 it was producing 3,000 cases of wine. The estate was divided and fell into decline towards the late 19th century but it was brought back to life by John X. Merriman. In 1941 it was acquired by Peter and Pamela Barlow and their son Simon has run Rustenberg since 1987. They offer a strong, consistent portfolio of red and white wines based on classic varieties. Their flagship wines have gained international recognition and are built to last, so do not be afraid to cellar them for several years or more.” (Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate)
