Anthonij Rupert Optima 2012

Alluring spicy aromatic overlay to dark berry and plum fruit, with blackcurrant leaf and hint of cracked black pepper and violet. This wine is all about texture - from its soft, velvety entry to the gentleness of the spice, which pervades the cassis, black fruit and cedar flavours. Ample turned earth and tobacco leaf notes, too. Beautifully layered and harmonious with the fruit ideally supported and framed by gentle oak. Refined and elegant throughout. Rich, plush and nuanced with an aftertaste that lingers.
