Rust en Vrede shiraz 2000 (review)

83 points

Stellenbosch, South Africa. 13.5%

Dark red colour. Odd aromas vegetal smokey. Afterwhich the palate is a surprising, reassuring hit of sweet fruit. With food it seems more savoury, though somewhat swamped.

Shiraz is a rising star in South Africa. This is a very modest success from an acclaimed red wine specialist.
