Anthonij Rupert Optima 2006

Velvety spice, cocoa blue and black berry aromas. Sweet and appealing berry compote. Rich fruited plum and berry spice. Bold entry with a chocolately richness. Delicious! Restrained and elegant. Finesse... great blend, a tribute to its maker/grower. Well constructed. Lithe and elegant. Yummy and delicious. Good structure.

in the vineyard : After a careful process of identifying the top terroirs for each cultivar, sites were identified, assessed and then selected by our team of winemakers and viticulturists.
The vineyards were hand tended throughout the season, with individual bunches and canopies managed to their utmost potential.
Grapes were tested and tasted for ripeness by the winemakers and the viticultural team on a daily basis. Once all were convinced that the terroir and vintage expressed itself perfectly, we decided to harvest. Vineyards were selected from different sites in the Western Cape and each varietal paired to a selected soil, climate and slope.
