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 Protea Merlot 2018
Bold, enticing ripe blackberry and plum aroma. Gentle, soft-fruited entry to the mouth. The juicy blackberry and plum flavours are immediately apparent, along with a subtle tinge of spice. Rounded, fleshy and voluptuous texture with a light squeeze of tannin. Structured but pliable and generous with a rewardingly long, velvet tail.
