Bin:  930

Alcohol percentage:  12%

Area:

Rustenberg is a stunning estate on the Simonsberg mountain, just outside the town of Stellenbosch

Grape variety:

Chenin Blanc and Crouchen, air-dried on straw mats for five weeks before fermentation in oak and early bottling

Producer:

Historic estate, chiefly known for fine Chardonnay and Cabernet, owned since 1941 by the Barlow family

Old Bridge rating:

Soft, rounded, creamy – great value, easy-drinking style

Press review:

“Blend of Viognier, Chenin Blanc and Crouchen laid out to dry and concentrate the sugars on straw then aged in barrel for five months. Lovely tangy bargain. Massive richness and then apple skins. Great, exciting balance. Drink this Christmas. Clean and bumptious” – www. jancisrobinson.com (1 of ‘best 25 sweet/fortified of 2011’)
