Superb Bordeaux-blend with wonderful elegance. Think right bank (52% Merlot), smooth, fruity, plums and cigar box. Good ageing potential and delicious right now too.

      Tasting Notes
      John X is a blend of traditional Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot the dominant partnership. As well as being one of the most convincing new world Bordeaux blends, it typifies the Rustenberg terroir with plum and cigar-box aromatics introducing a multi-layered palate with an elegant tannin structure. It has good ageing potential, if cellared correctly and will give pleasure for 10 to 15 years from vintage. Its pedigree is exemplified by the 93 point score awarded to the 2011 vintage by Neal Martin of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

      Tim Atkin awarded this wine an impressive score of 93 points in his annual South African report from 2015. Decanter Magazine also included Rustenberg John X in its 'Best buys under £20' round up of 2015.
