Picture of ANTHONIJ RUPERT BLEND 2013
Complex bouquet of black berry fruits, rich fruitcake, tobacco, herbs and even a subtle note of violets. The palate is superbly refined, elegant and poised with the rounded rich black cherry-, plum- and cassis notes countered by spice, cedar and deeper leather and tobacco leaf/cigar box flavours. Powerful but restrained. The oak is effortlessly integrated and supports the fruit harmoniously. Complex, long and richly rewarding. An aristocrat of a wine.

Picture of ANTHONIJ RUPERT CABERNET FRANC 2016
Seductive bouquet of blue and black berry compote with a gentle herb and violet sheen backed by a subtle earthy note. The palate is sensual, sleek and supple initially before a muscular oak grip announces itself. Those same blue and black berries and plum fruits are apparent, along with a spicy cedar and light vanilla nuance and herbaceous and earthy undertone. Overall, it’s cohesive and structured with everything in place but there’s a notable brooding muscularity and restrained power with sufficient freshness to balance, which bodes well for maturation. Harmonious and long.

Picture of ANTHONIJ RUPERT SYRAH 2015
Seductive meaty black fruit aromas with traces of white pepper and a shy hint of smoke. Appealing sour plum, black cherry and soy sauce flavour makes for a deliciously savoury mouthful. A toned, sculpted frame of well-knit oak balances bright spice and succulence. The palate is plush and silky while also demonstrating leashed power and presence. Beautifully restrained and statuesque with a darkly delicious aftertaste.

Picture of ANTHONIJ RUPERT OPTIMA 2018 MAGNUM (1.5Lt)
Bold plum, hedgerow fruit with a tempting dried lavender perfume on the nose. The wine confidently stalks onto the palate. Sleek yet succulent with rich spicy forest floor and the same hedgerow notes from the nose. A brush of herbs and fynbos adds interest. The wine is structured with a firm core of oak which is supportive rather than prominent or overbearing. Beautifully elegant and poised with lovely harmony all the way to its lingering and smart finish. Drinking well now, it will reward additional patience and careful cellaring.

Picture of ANTHONIJ RUPERT MERLOT 2016
Tempting herb notes overlay riper plum and berry fruit aromas. In the mouth hedgerow fruit or berries and plum flavours are joined by deeper, darker inky nuances of cocoa and cedar. A deceptively soft textured palate also shows intensity with spice and earthiness and some powerful muscularity from time in oak. The tannins are integrated and add structure and grip as well as a dry, oak element to the long fruited tail. Complex and delightful, will benefit from further ageing.

Mixed spice mingles with dark plum punctuated by whiffs of leather on the nose. The palate follows through with interesting flavours of clove and savoury smokiness. The palate delights with a soft and focused tannin structure and lingering after taste.

Picture of CAPE OF GOOD HOPE PAREL VALLEI MERLOT 2017
Subtle mint and eucalyptus edge to bold black cherry and soft dark berry fruit aroma. Christmas cake, packed with rich black fruits, spice, cinnamon and cedar can be found on the palate. Soft textured and velvety with a distinct plushness and ease, the oak harmonizes well with the fruit profile, supporting it seamlessly. Superbly representative of another great vintage, it boasts a long, rewarding finish.

Picture of CAPE OF GOOD HOPE RIEBEEKSRIVIER SOUTHERN SLOPES 2017
Ample plum and baked red stone fruit with a subtle hint of meat and smoke on the nose. The textured palate is supple, lithe and pliable with a melange of plum and black fruits livened by a vibrant spicy pepperiness. The oak is well knit and seamless, contributing structure and body with its fine, dry tannin but a good line of acid adds freshness. Smooth, ripe, confident and refined with a long tail.

Tempting aromas of dried lavender, violet and fynbos with tendrils of spice alongside ripe black cherry, plum and blueberry fruit. Those same blue and black fruit flavours are found on the focussed, complex palate. Simultaneously spicy and succulent but balanced with fine, dry tannin. Taut with good restraint. Very composed and sleek with grip and a delightful rich, earthy tail.

Picture of CAPE OF GOOD HOPE RIEBEEKSRIVIER SYRAH 2017
Gentle herbaceous base note of dried lavender underpins more typical fynbos, blue and black fruit on the nose. A structured, elegant yet powerful wine, the palate delivers black cherry, plum and dried herb flavours with a subtle punctuation of black pepper. Layered and complex, the ripe fruit is both succulent and beautifully integrated with the oak, which adds a light, dry tannin frame. The finish is long and refined.

Picture of CAPE OF GOOD HOPE SNEEUWKRANS PINOT NOIR 2019
Sneeuwkrans Pinot noir presents with a perfumed floral nose, cherry blossom, ripe plum and raspberry aromatics. In typical Pinot Noir character, it displays approachability with complexity and subtle nuance, while remaining succulent and generous. There is a guile and mystery to this wine. Broad and laidback on entry, it offers bright red fruits but then also subtler, earthy, deep forest floor intensity. Silky, refined and pliable, with a powerful core and backbone from integrated oak. Poised and long rewarding.
R 365.00
Picture of CAPE OF GOOD HOPE SNEEUWKRANS PINOT NOIR 2018 MAGNUM (1.5Lt)
Trademark vivid black cherry, blueberry and spice aromas with a hint of autumn leaf and graphite. Complex but light. That same deftness and complexity is apparent in the mouth: flavours of cocoa, turned earth or forest floor with spiced black berry fruit. Soft textured and velvety with gentle tannin squeeze and an undertone of power and depth. A nuanced, poised wine which is simultaneously ethereal and brooding. Good body, balance and length.

Picture of PROTEA CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2020
Instant charm of fruitcake and Christmas pudding; black fruits, spice galore and light brush of herbs on the nose. Gently rounded and supple upon entry, further adds to its attraction. The spicy plum, black berries and cherry of the nose are echoed on the palate too. Delicious and succulent but structured too with a good backbone. Silky smooth in texture, it has a gentle satiny grip with a long, rewarding tail.
R 82.00
Picture of PROTEA SHIRAZ 2020
An abundance of red and purple fruit on the nose with hints of spice and lavender. The pallet presents with fynbos character and bright berry flavours, rounded by a touch of oak. Elegant yet firm tannins with good medium body. Wine finishes with subtle flinty and smokey characteristics.

Packed with appeal by good structure and body.
