SERIOUS, DRY REDS

Bordeaux-style reds - OPTIMA, Anthonij Rupert. Stellenbosch, South Africa

2015 OPTIMA, Anthonij Rupert. Western Cape, South Africa

Bin: 500
Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: 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).
Grape Variety: 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot; aged for 18 months in French oak (one third new wood).
Producer: 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.
Old Bridge Rating: A classic, rather “serious” Bordeaux blend - a fine example of what Stellenbosch does best.
