2013 Rustenberg John X Merriman

Share on Facebook

This  wine  is  named  after  a  former  owner  of  Rustenberg,  John  Xavier  Merriman,  who  bought  the  farm  in  1892  in  sympathy with farmers suffering from the  phylloxera crisis. He played a great role in revitalizing Rustenberg and  in promoting the tourism and agricultural value of Ida’s Valley, the area close to the town of Stellenbosch in which  Rustenberg  is  situated.  The  John  X  Merriman  is  Rustenberg's  Estate

wine,  a  blend  of  Bordeaux  varietals  that illustrate  the  age ability and true expression of Rustenberg's finest  vineyards.



We  recommend  decanting this wine before serving.



VINTAGE

The  vines  emerged from  a  cold, wet Winter  and enjoyed even  budding in the Spring of 2012. Strong winds  in

early Summer affected the  yields and canopies  of some  varieties  but cool and consistent weather in early 2013

resulted in later than usual ripening. The cool growing season meant the grapes reaching their flavour ripeness

withlow sugars resulting in medium-bodied, elegant wines being produced.
