Abundant cherry and strawberry appeal add to the lightly floral and citrus nuanced nose. Intense flavours of raspberry, cherry and strawberries presents on the palate. Lively, succulent and fresh but with a gentle and well-rounded body. As with the nose, there’s a light citrus – pink grapefruit – nuance which adds to the overall appeal. Lovely long lingering tail.

Each vineyard was harvested separately by hand in the cool early morning hours to capture the freshest flavours. The fruit was both de-stemmed
and whole-bunch pressed before overnight settling. The individual parcels were fermented separately by a selection of cultured yeast strains in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine spent 2 – 3 months on the lees in order to build a full, well rounded palate before being blended and bottled.

Mourvèdre (67%), Grenache (15%), Carignan (5%) Ugni Blanc (5%) Cinsault (4%), Malbec (3%), Shiraz (1%)

Anthonij Rupert Wyne proudly introduces the Protea Range. Everything about this range seeks to marry the old with the new. The heritage of the vines, innovatively tied into distinctive packaging designs, is made to be re-used and recycled, thus prolonging the lifecycle of the product. While we are celebrating Cape wine culture, we have stripped it down to some of the defining elements of the landscape, irrevocably tying the brand to the land. We invite you to be the judge!
