Rich and complex – that is the Vrede en Lust Barrique. The colour of the blend of Sémillon (95%) and Sauvignon Blanc (5%) alone makes you want more. Fruity quince aromas and earthy tones pamper the connoisseur's nose, while mineral notes linger long on the palate. With its elegance and beautiful balance, the classic white wine blend offers pleasurable moments on its own, but the Vrede en Lust Barrique, which matured for several months in small French oak barrels, is also a wonderful food companion. Try this white wine with roasted tuna, poultry or pasta.

Expert Judgement

"Barrique - barrel - indicates that this is an oaked style from Vrede en Lust, using the winery's best blocks of Semillon blended with 10% Sauvignon Blanc. Spicy, herbal, subtle and leesy with wax, dill and citrus peel flavours and a long finish. " Tim Atiken South Africa Report 2021

Vrede en Lust – run by the Family Buys

Since 1996, the family Buys runs Vrede en Lust with a constantly growing success. The Buys are the 17th owner of the estate already, but it was them that have given the winery the required consistency and quality that have made it one of the most beautiful and interesting ones in the whole of South Africa. After an extensive renovation and conversion, Vrede en Lust can finally realise its full potential and has been doing exactly that for some years now. Susan Erasmus, one of the few female winemakers in South Africa, has managed for eleven years that Vrede en Lust is now a permanent part of the elite of South African wineries due to her perfectionist approach. Karlin Nel who has been Susan Erasmus’ assistant took over the position as head winemaker in the youthful age of 26 years in autumn 2017.
