Rustenberg, Roussanne, Stellenbosch, South Africa 2021
(at Guild of Fine Food, London SE1, 21 Sep 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2025
Rustenberg made the Cape's first varietal Roussanne in 2004 and it gets better each vintage. Very youthful still, it has apricot blossom perfume with delicate flavours of guava and wet stones on the fleshy, rounded palate. It's a variety that reveals its charms slowly, so buy a couple of bottles for the cellar.
