Anthonij Rupert Optima Magnum 2019 (1.5L)


Platter's Guide: 4 * (92 points)
90 Points - Tim Atkin

Opulent but genteel and tempting violet-tinged soft black fruit abundance on the nose. The palate is all about texture: silky, velvety, smooth and simultaneously plush. Ripe plums, hedgerow fruit, cocoa, cedar and spice, cigarbox flavours makes for an enveloping mouthful. Complex, elegant and beautifully integrated, the oak is seamlessly balanced with the fruit. Lingering & harmonious with not a single element out of place.

Food Pairing
Fillet with Mustard and Brandy Sauce

32% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot
