Cabernet franc 2010

In the Vineyard
The vineyards selected for the 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 and location.
 
Winemaking
Grapes are picked by hand, placed into small lug boxes and transported to the cellar in a cool truck. In the cellar, the whole berries are manually double sorted and then gravity fed into fermentors. Each batch is cold soaked for a few days and then slowly brought up in temperature. Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally in the barrel.The wines were aged for 18 to 24 months in 225 L new French oak barrels, bottled unfiltered and bottle aged for a year.

Technical Information
Average Temperature: 18.56°C
Rainfall: 1408mm
Harvesting Began: 15/02/2010
Harvesting Ended: 23/02/2010
Origin of fruit (from which farm): 80% Helderberg. 20% Rooderust
Soil Type: Granite with Clay
Yield: 6 ton/ha

Tasting Notes
Blackberry pastille notes vie with oreganum, cocoa, graphite and fynbos on the nose. Succulent entry with oodles of spicy black berry fruit, cocoa and cinnamon spice with a light brush of herbs. Textured and inky. Dry, fine tannins are noticeable but provide grip rather than overwhelming the fruit. Plush, layered, elegant and long.

Origin of Fruit (from which farm): Franschhoek
Soil Type: Decomposed Granite
Yield: 8 ton/ha

Tasting Notes
Cracked pepper and spice whiffs overlay bolder plum, blue fruit and a light violet nose. Falvours of ripe, juicy blue and black fruit are obvious in the mouth. Plush, squishy and succulent, the wine is both rich and rewarding. Agile and smooth textured, there's a pliability to the mouthful which adds to its appeal. Oak is supportive rather than assertive or overwhelming with fine tannins. Long aftertaste and good length.

Optima 2012

In the Vineyard
After a careful process of identifying the top terroir for each cultivar, sites were identified, assessed and then selected.  Grapes were tested and tasted for ripeness by the winemakers on a daily basis. Vineyards were selected from different sites in the Western Cape and each varietal paired to a selected soil, climate and slope.
 
Winemaking
In 2012 the grapes were handpicked in the early morning at 24.4˚Balling, placed in lug boxes and transported in refrigerated trucks to arrive at the cellar. The grapes are then sorted on a double sorting table. After the cold-soaking, fermentation started and lasted for about 20 days.  Malolactic fermentation took place in 225ℓ new French oak barrels and 10000ℓ wooden tanks. The wines were made and aged separately for 18 months in 225ℓ French oak barrels (35% new oak).  The wines were blended and aged for a further 6 months in barrel and tank and bottle-matured for 24 months before release.

Technical Information
Average Temperature: 17.8 °C
Rainfall: 1046.4mm
Harvesting Began: 12/02/2012
Harvesting Ended: 07/03/2012
Origin of Fruit: L'Ormarins and Rooderust
Soil Type: Decomposed granite and clay
Yield: 8 ton/ha

Tasting Notes
Alluring spicy aromatic overlay to dark berry and plum fruit with blackcurrant leaf and hint of cracked black pepper and violet. This wine is all about texture - from its soft, velvety entry to the gentleness of the spice which pervades the cassis, back fruit and cedar flavour. Ample turned earth and tobacco leaf notes too. Beautifully layeared and harmonious with the fruit ideally supported and gramed by sympathetic oak. Nothing is overplayed or dominant. Refined and elegant throughout. Rich, plush and nuanced with an aftertaste that lingers.

About us

Company details

Anthonij Rupert Wyne was founded on the farm, L’Ormarins in Franschhoek. Originally owned by the late Anthonij Rupert, who passed away in 2001, the farm was eventually taken over by his brother Johann Rupert in 2003 and the brand named after him.

It was Johann Rupert who constructed a state-of-the-art winemaking facility, catapulting the farm into a prestigious wine estate and the beginnings of what is now a sprawling enterprise.

The focus is on terroir specific wines and therefore it would seem obvious that the brand is made up of an impressive portfolio of farms representing the best in grape producing locations.

The portfolio is made up of L’Ormarins situated in Franschhoek, Rooderust in Darling, Riebeeksrivier in the Swartland and Altima in isolated Elandskloof. Individually each site offers optimum varietal specific growing conditions, allowing Anthonij Rupert Wyne to adhere to the requirements of their different brands.

Wine Range

The Anthonij Rupert Wyne vision is made up of a number of facets, best illustrated by their 5 wine brands which each contribute to the overall goal.

Anthonij Rupert:
The flagship range, represent the pinnacle of quality, achieved by using only the best grapes from the best suited terroirs and processed by the most sophisticated machinery in winemaking today.

Cape of Good Hope:
The range pays tribute to the vinous heritage of the Western Cape, using grapes from ancient vines and unique sites to celebrate their impressive inheritance of terroir, climate, soil and grape variety.

The L’Ormarins:
The range focuses on innovation with their first Méthode Cap Classique, challenging the emerging market successfully.

The Terra del Capo:
The range is a homage to the late Anthonij Rupert and his passion to bring the finest of Italian varietals to South African soils, with two distinctly Italian wines.

The Protea:
The range is made up of the more accessible wines bearing the name of South Africa’s national flower as well as the shape-shifting Greek God, Proteus illustrating the diversity of the range and commitment to the area.


These brands unite to form a mighty vision of quality, innovation and South African heritage, something that is replicated in all aspects of Anthonij Rupert Wyne.

The Estate

The L’Ormarins Estate houses the Terra del Capo cellars, equipped with state-of-the-art machinery, gravity-fed cellars and a mechanical flywheel, the only one of its kind on the continent and responsible for the production of these award-winning wines. The precision and sense of detail is carried on to two exquisite tasting rooms located on the estate, each one dedicated to one of the popular wine ranges.

Anthonij Rupert Wyne has become an experience and we encourage guests to come and visit us on the estate.
