ANTHONIJ RUPERT OPTIMA 2020

Complex bouquet of fruitcake, cedar, cocoa and a perfumed whiff of dried lavender. Broad, fleshy and succulent with all of that the nose promises being delivered on the palate. Spice sprinkled cedar with rich dark fruitcake flavour. Wonderfully soft, rounded and silky palate that shows cohesion and refinement. Impressive density and concentration that doesn’t overwhelm. Nor does the oak used in the maturation of this impressive blend. Plush, comfortable and eminently rewarding with a lingering dry tail.

Vigorous and lively bubble with trademark string of pearls rising to the surface. Seaspray, lime zest, chalk and subtler aromas of orange peel is present on the nose. The palate is energetic and tangy with abundant crunchy green apple and lime zip on entry. That vivacity is then tempered and smoothed as the wine morphs into a rich but restrained mouthful of creamy citrus and gentle biscuit from its time on lees. Refined and elegant, it lingers on the aftertaste but never loses its lively youthfulness and seamless integration of fruit, lees and bright acidity.

Aromatics of stone fruit with a nutty marzipan flavour and hints of oak are apparent too. The palate reflects the time the components of this blend spent in wood with a broad, creamy spiciness that complements the peach, quince, and gooseberry fruit flavours. Clean, structured, and powerful, the wine is kept in check with an acidic freshness. Lovely texture with good palate weight—the wine promises and delivers an elegant, creamy, long, and enjoyable mouthful.

Bold purple plums, black cherries and perfume with subtle edge of cut flower stems on the nose. The palate is taut, needing a bit of time and air to reveal its strata of spicy purple and black berry fruits. There’s an oak edge which lends both spice and structure to the wine while acidity adds freshness and piquancy. Savoury, tangy and tasty with a long tail, it will reward patience.

Apricot and stone fruit aromas also show a light lemon and gravel nuance. The palate is bright and thrilling with crisp acid zip, nicely taut and tangy, balanced by ripe fruit notes of apricot, melon, and quince. There is also a lively lemon zest succulence. A light and refreshing mouthful which is so appealing and has you coming back for more. Ideal for summer.
