Boet Erasmus was Dana & Etienne Buys’ renowned grandfather. He played a major role in their lives and introduced them to fine wines. It is therefore no surprise that the Vrede en Lust flagship red wine is named after their late grandfather. The Boet Erasmus is an elegant new world Bordeaux-style blend. This red wine incorporates classic cultivars that showcase abundant fruit, well balanced with oak.
Each component of this wine was harvested at optimal ripeness and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Pumpovers for each component took place 3 times a day. Once fermentation is done the grapes are pressed and then undergo malolactic fermentation in tank. The wine was matured in French oak barrels (35% new) for 18 months.
Very primary on the nose – lifted red and black fruit, tobacco and vanilla plus a little earthiness. Full bodied with bright acidity and fine tannins leading to a long and savoury finish. Poised and understated, a wine worth cellaring.
