The historic L'Ormarins wine estate, established in 1694, are nestled beneath the jagged peaks of the Groot Drakenstein mountain, where the granite soils produce strong, expressive wines. It was out of this estate that Johann Rupert created Anthonij Rupert Wines, a tribute to his late brother. The wines of Anthonij Rupert are a true representation of this larger than life individual: big, with bold flavors that will leave a lasting impression. The vineyards selected for Anthonij Rupert wines are chosen from vines planted on very specific sites and soil types. The canopies of each block and the final yield of each site was managed precisely to express the character of the different varietal location.

Wine Notes
Color
Deep purple
Aroma
Beguiling nose of ripe, dark berries and spicy fruitcake with some cedary cigarbox undertones.
Taste
Rich and ripe in the mouth yet displaying elegance and refinement, the same spicy fruitcake and cedar flavors mingle with a deeper, forest floor and cocoa powder note. Gentle floral lilt at the tail end of a long aftertaste. Balanced throughout.

Wine Notes
Color
Deep purple
Aroma
Deductive blueberry vines with an exotic overtone of musk, spice and cinnamon.
Taste
Tangy and succulent entry with deep, rich and appealing cocoa/chocolate flavour over blue and black berry fruit wtih a light herbal nuance below. The body is gently rounded and voluptuous while still structured with a pleasing, velvety finish.
