Tasting Notes:

The wine presents a complex ever-yielding nose with hints of vanilla with dark red berries and black currant, pencil shavings and cigar box, with great follow through to the palate. There is an upfront, full and generous mouthfeel with an elegant, yet firm tannin structure, ending in a rich powerful and lingering finish.

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

Each batch is cold-soaked for a few days and then slowly brought up in temperature. Fermentation takes place naturally in the large wooden tanks. The wine is then aged for 24 months in 80% new French oak. After bottling the wine is finally bottle-aged for another 24 months.

Grapes are picked by hand, placed into small lug boxes and transported to the cellar in refrigerated trucks. In the cellar, the whole berries are sorted with an optical sorter ensuring exceptional care and quality at the start and then gravity-fed into wooden fermenters.
