Tasting Notes:

Spicy cedar and blackberry aromas mingle with a bold cocoa and plum on the nose. So soft and rounded - almost velvety - in the mouth with those fruit and oak spice aromas making their way to the palate confidently. They're joined by tobacco leaf, cigar box and more dark chocolate flavour. Rich, elegant and refined with beautiful structure. Complex and layered too. A wine that remains a memory long after the mouthful has gone.

The grapes selected for the Anthonij Rupert range of flagship wines are carefully selected from vines planted on very specific sites and soil types. The canopies of each block and the final yield of each site are expertly managed to express the character of each varietal and location.

The wines were aged for 18 to 24 months in 100% new French oak, 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 double sorted by hand and then gravity fed into fermentors. Each batch is cold soaked for a few days and then slowly brought up in temperature. Fermentation takes place naturally. The wines were aged for 18 to 24 months in 80% new French oak, bottled unfiltered and bottle aged for 2 years.
