Toasty vanilla cookie and citrus marmalade aromas with a peach nuance below. Rounded, ripe and rich palate which is packed with citrus, peach, vanilla and biscuit flavour.

The Riebeeksrivier farm is situated on the slopes of the Kasteelberg, overlooking the Swartland. Its unique terroir, especially the shale soils, expresses itself strongly in the wine with unique varietal characteristics. The Marsanne (2012/11), Rousanne (2009) and Viognier (2009) vineyards are trellised in the typical échalas Rhône style ("stok by paaltjie"), while the Chenin Blanc (1988) vineyard is bushvine. Chenin Blanc (50%), Roussanne (22%), Viognier (20%) and Marsanne (8%)

The fruit was harvested by hand at optimal ripeness and transported to the cellar in small lug-boxes in refrigerated trucks. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and settled overnight before the juice was fermented separately in both stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels. The wine spent 7 months on the lees in French Oak (11% new) and stainless steel (25%) before being bottled in October.

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.
