Rustenberg Five Soldiers 2003

International Wine & Spirit Competition 2006 - Silver Best in Class
True single-vineyard wine that possesses a unique character-subtle fruit & oak integration evolves complexity with time in bottle. Wonderful mouthfeel and underlying power on the palate compliments the great fruit flavours. A definite food wine because of its concentration and complexity.
