ANTHONIJ RUPERT CABERNET FRANC 2016

Seductive bouquet of blue and black berry compote with a gentle herb and violet sheen backed by a subtle earthy note. The palate is sensual, sleek and supple initially before a muscular oak grip announces itself. Those same blue and black berries and plum fruits are apparent, along with a spicy cedar and light vanilla nuance and herbaceous and earthy undertone. Overall, it’s cohesive and structured with everything in place but there’s a notable brooding muscularity and restrained power with sufficient freshness to balance, which bodes well for maturation. Harmonious and long.

Bold plum, hedgerow fruit with a tempting dried lavender perfume on the nose. The wine confidently stalks onto the palate. Sleek yet succulent with rich spicy forest floor and the same hedgerow notes from the nose. A brush of herbs and fynbos adds interest. The wine is structured with a firm core of oak which is supportive rather than prominent or overbearing. Beautifully elegant and poised with lovely harmony all the way to its lingering and smart finish. Drinking well now, it will reward additional patience and careful cellaring.

Beautiful typical varietal Shiraz perfume with an enticing floral overlay. A combination of red and purple fruit dominates the nose with violets and hints of spice. The pallet dances with a combination of raspberry and black current and fades into a smokey and flinty finish. Soft and elegant tannins are well supported by good structure and body.

The wine announces with an eye catching vigorous bubble. Typical yeast and cracker biscuit notes on the nose with lively citrus rind and a briny, maritime nuance is also apparent. The palate succeeds in being both refreshingly vibrant and simultaneously dry. Bright effervescence with creamy lees richness from its time in the bottle, with distinct brioche and sourdough toast notes vying with lively grapefruit and citrus flavours. Elegant, restrained, taut and thrilling, it’s beautifully poised yet equally flamboyant and exuberant! A gentle nutty note lingers on the long tail.

Appealing playful lightness of pear and nectarine on the nose. Tangy, light and zesty, the mouthful is fresh and succulent. Intense lemon zip accompanies pear drop and stone fruit vibrance. Lively, clean and crisp with a gentle lees suggestion. Lightweight and easy to enjoy. Pleasantly dry to the end.
