Tasting Notes:

Attractive cherry fruitcake and black berry aromas tinged with a faint hint of choc mint. This is a wine that is all about texture and mouth feel: softly rounded and plush with abundant ripe plum- and spicy cherry fruit flavour with a touch of tobacco leaf. Gently seductive and alluring with beautiful integration of oak. Lovely freshness throughout. Harmoniously long finish.

The proprietor of Anthonij Rupert Wyne, Johann Rupert, has taken a personal interest in this parcel of fruit - since it is planted literally in his backyard. A small blcok of Merlot, planted at high density in residential Somerset-West, produces this uniquely perfumed wine. Deep clay soils and strict canopy management of the vertically trellised vines gives us consistency of character and taste of the grapes and wine. 

It was aged in the same new French oak barrels for 24 months and bottle-aged for a further 24 months. 

The grapes were hand-sorted, and fermented in 225L new French oak barrels. After fermentation, skin contact was extended for a further 8 days before pressing the wine, bringing the total time on the skins to about 45 days. The wine went through malolactic fermentation in the same barrels
