Anthonij Rupert Main Blend
Only hand picked grapes from premier sites go into this Flagship red Bordeaux Blend, comprising predominately Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This terroir specific wine is produced from grapes from the family's L'Ormarins vineyards which adds richness and fullness to the wine, whilst grapes from the Rooderust vineyards supply the intense fruit aromas. Together these terroirs produced a unique wine, aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak, bottled then matured for a further 24 months.
