ANTHONIJ RUPERT OPTIMA 2020

Complex bouquet of fruitcake, cedar, cocoa and a perfumed whiff of dried lavender. Broad, fleshy and succulent with all of that the nose promises being delivered on the palate. Spice sprinkled cedar with rich dark fruitcake flavour. Wonderfully soft, rounded and silky palate that shows cohesion and refinement. Impressive density and concentration that doesn’t overwhelm. Nor does the oak used in the maturation of this impressive blend. Plush, comfortable and eminently rewarding with a lingering dry tail.

Vigorous and lively bubble with trademark string of pearls rising to the surface. Seaspray, lime zest, chalk and subtler aromas of orange peel is present on the nose. The palate is energetic and tangy with abundant crunchy green apple and lime zip on entry. That vivacity is then tempered and smoothed as the wine morphs into a rich but restrained mouthful of creamy citrus and gentle biscuit from its time on lees. Refined and elegant, it lingers on the aftertaste but never loses its lively youthfulness and seamless integration of fruit, lees and bright acidity.

Aromatics of stone fruit with a nutty marzipan flavour and hints of oak are apparent too. The palate reflects the time the components of this blend spent in wood with a broad, creamy spiciness that complements the peach, quince, and gooseberry fruit flavours. Clean, structured, and powerful, the wine is kept in check with an acidic freshness. Lovely texture with good palate weight—the wine promises and delivers an elegant, creamy, long, and enjoyable mouthful.

Lively stream of fine bubbles bring sherbert and lemon cream biscuit aromas to the nose. Vibrant, fresh and crisp in the mouth with those bright, citrus flavours promised by the nose immediately apparent. Tangy lime and grapefruit with a marmalade twist, and an understated apple and toast nuance which adds complexity and dimension. Beautifully resolved, elegant and composed with a resolved dry finale.

The subtle pale shade of coppery pink is eye-catching but the aromas of plum and red fruit, mingled with chalky limestone and fresh citrus simply add to the appeal. The energetic and zippy bubbles deliver the berried red fruit flavours to the tongue while the zesty citrus notes add acid balance add piquancy. Focussed, clean and dry with a faint but gentle brushstroke of creamy richness from yeast and lees that simply adds interest and complexity. Long-lived, stylish and refreshing throughout.
