A graceful New World Bordeaux-style blend, Vrede En Lust Estate's Boet Erasmus is the winery's best-selling red wine.
The wine introduces itself with berry aromas on the nose, joined subsequently by cedar and pencil shavings. The flavours on the palate are revealed in layers. There is stunning balance between the ripeness of the fruit and the graceful nature of the wine.
Pairing it with food? Opt for beef rump or sirloin, or hearty meat dishes. It works just as well with rich, mature cheeses. A firm tannin structure makes for a wine capable of considerable ageing.
