Anthonij Rupert 'Optima' Franschhoek 2015

Red Wine Collection by Philglas & Swiggot

The South African businessman Dr Anthon Rupert bought L'Ormarins and La Motte wineries in 1970. His youngest son Anthonij died in a car crash in 2001, and this new estate and brand was named after him. Since 2003 it has been run by his brother Johann Rupert. Anthonij Rupert are based on the historic L'Ormarins farm in Franschhoek, but have vineyards throughout the Western Cape. Optima is their top wine, a blend of wine made from Ormarins and their Rooderust farm in Darling (near the coast).

Beautiful seductive interplay of spice and red and black berry fruits on both the nose and palate. The mouth is succulent and packed with black cherry, blueberry and plum. Adding to its complexity is a notable violet hint and inky depth. Complex, layered, rich and powerful without being chunky or aggressive. Nothing is overplayed or dominant; it’s superbly structured and all the piece fit together well. Restrained use of oak and deliciously long with a finish that lingers.
