Anthonij Rupert Main Blend 2013

Anthonij Rupert Main 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.

in the vineyard : The vineyards for this specific blend were chosen from our best sites, L’Ormarins in Franschhoek and Rooderust in Groenekloof, close to Darling.
The L'Ormarins vineyards with the decomposed granite supplied the richness and fullness to the wine. The Rooderust vineyards, which has more clay and a slightly warmer climate, supplied the intense fruit aromas. Together these terroirs produced a unique wine.
