Based on the L’Ormarins estate in Franschoek the Anthonij Rupert estate is fast becoming one of the most impressive and innovative wineries in South Africa. Fruit comes from four vineyard properties in Franschoek itself, Elandskloof, Riebeeksrivier and Darling. Johan Rupert has built one of the most driven and talented teams in the industry and the result is a suitable memorial to Johan’s late brother Anthonij.
Anthonij Rupert Cape of Good Hope Van Lill & Visser Chenin Blanc 2017
Vibrant nose of nectarine, stone fruit and melon with a vague hint of flint. There’s more of the same on the palate which is taut but showing lively, fresh arpicot, peach and melon flavours. The acidity makes for a juicy mouthful. Lovely palate weight and texture. Good grip and a long, satisfying aftertaste
