The name of this wine pays tribute to the man who recognized the potential of Rustenberg, and bought the farm in 1941, reuniting the property, restoring its buildings and investing in its potential to make world class wines. The oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard on the estate is named the Peter Barlow block and consistently produces powerful, long-lived Cabernet Sauvignon that is given the best possible treatment in the cellar. Peter's family now continues his legacy. We recommend decanting this wine before serving.
Though many of the vintage’s wines have yet to be released, the 2017 vintage is already regaled as one of South Africa’s best, even on the heels of the widely successful 2015 vintage.
With scents of crushed violet, brambly berry, plum and cherry. Plush and generous in feel, the palate is quite expressive and bold in nature, with a concentrated black-fruit character and a touch of spicy warmth and medium tannins.
