Anthonij Rupert Jean Roi Cap Provincial Rosé 2021

Anthonij Rupert Jean Roi Cap Provincial Rosé 2021

Appealing mélange of strawberry, raspberry and youngberry on the nose. Vivacious, bright and juicy, with those same berry fruits also found in the mouth. Lovely freshness and succulence from lively acidity, superbly balanced by body and breadth. The wine finishes on a light yet firm chalky grip coupled with good dimension and concentration. Lovely dry tail and resolved finish.

in the vineyard : The Riebeeksrivier farm is situated on the slopes of the Kasteelberg, overlooking the Swartland towards the iconic Table Mountain. Its unique terroir, especially the shale soils, expresses itself firmly in the wine with each of the varieties contributing its own distinctive character. The vines for this blend are all planted on south facing slopes at elevations of 350 – 400m above sea level. The oldest Cinsaut bush vines were planted in 1990, while the Shiraz and Grenache vines were planted between 2010 and 2017 respectively.

about the harvest: 

Harvesting Began: 05/02/2021
Harvesting Ended: 26/02/2020

in the cellar : This premium rosé is made in the same dry style as the famous rosés of Provence, France. Grapes were hand-picked into lug boxes and transported to the cellar in refrigerated trucks. Great care was taken to minimise the amount of colour extraction from the grapes through gentle pressing, before overnight settling. Fermentation by indigenous yeast occurred spontaneously in 50% of the blend. The wine spent 5 months on the fine lees in a
combination of stainless steel tanks (78%) and old French oak puncheons (22%) before being blended and bottled.
