Anthonij Rupert Optima 2020


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

Instant seduction of violet, blackberry, cherry, cocoa, spice and fruitcake perfume. Black Forest gateau in one whiff. Those same ripe and rich flavours are found in the mouth which is soft, rounded, plush and embracing – but with a dry tail. Supple, textured and elegant it offers up concentration, structure as well as a velvety appeal. Layered, nuanced, cohesive and rewarding.

Food Pairing 
Fillet with Mustard and Brandy Sauce

37% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc
