Founded in 1682 the Rustenberg estate has been owned by the Barlow family in 1941. They farm 110 hectares of vines with a range of slopes and aspects allowing site-specific planting to enhance the varietal characteristics.
This Bordeaux blend is a powerful wine that will reward ageing. Cassis, blackcurrant and tobacco dominate with softening tannins. The wine is named for a former owner John Xavier Merriman, who played a great role in revitalising the area of Rustenberg.
