An optical sorting machine was used to ensure that only the best berries were selected to be crushed and fermented for the Anthonij Rupert Syrah. A combination of stainless steel and concrete tanks was used for fermentation. Once
fermented completely dry, the skins and the must is pressed in our basket press and transferred to the barrel for malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged on the gross lees for an additional six months before being tracked and returned to the barrel. A small portion of new 225L French oak barrels was used for maturation of about 18 -24 months???? Our extended barrel maturation and selection of oak allow for more mid-palate depth and a hint of smokiness and spice on the finish.
Gentle wax sheen on the blueberry, plum, and fynbos nose. Supple, rounded, and soft, with mouthwatering flavours of spicy and blueberries. Graphite, ink, and cocoa powder flavours combine to create a mouthful that is both complex and
satisfying. The oak is beautifully integrated and provides structure without overpowering the juicy fruit and allows for a long lingering finish on this sophisticated wine.
