Boet Erasmus was Dana & Etienne Buys’ maternal grandfather. He played a major role in their lives and also introduced them to fine wines. It should therefore come as no surprise that the Vrede en Lust flagship red wine was named after this remarkable man. The Boet Erasmus is an elegant new-world style Bordeaux blend. This blend incorporates the classic varietals and showcases abundant fruit that is well-balanced with oak.
The 2019 National Wine Challenge awarded Boet Erasmus 2015 as a Double Gold Winner. The 2016 Boet Erasmus received the Top 100 & Double Platinum award at the 2020 National Wine Challenge.
Very primary on the nose – lifted red and black fruit, tobacco and vanilla plus a little earthiness. Medium-bodied with pure fruit, bright acidity and fine tannins, the finish long and savory. Poised and understated, this wine has a good future ahead of it.
