Tasting Notes:

The deep, dark colour gives a hint of what's to come: blue- and black berry fruit with notes of freshly turned earth, pencil shavings and a brush of dried oreganum. The palate is equally complex and inviting with those rich, ripe, dark berry notes - but bright and inviting, not muscular and heavy. Spicy with graphite, licorice and more than a hint of ink. Complex, layered and refined with beautifully supply dry, fine tannin from integrated oak. Long, lithe and pliable on the finish. 

The vineyards selected for the Anthonij Rupert wines are chosen from vines planted on very specific sites and soil types. The canopies of each block and the final yield of each site was managed precisely to express the character of the different varietal and location.

The wines were aged for 18 to 24 months in 225l new French oak barrels, bottled unfiltered and bottle aged for a year.

Grapes are picked by hand, placed into small lug boxes and transported to the cellar in a cool truck. In the cellar, the whole berries are manually double-sorted and then gravity-fed into fermentors. Each batch is cold soaked for a few days and then slowly brought up in temperature. Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally in the barrel.

Food pairing
