The Anthonij Rupert L’Ormarins Brut Classique flows into the glass of the gourmet in a bright yellow-golden colour. Immediatly the fine bubbles become apparent and help the bouquet in its reach. Aromas of yellow, ripe fruits such as peach, apple and lemon flow into the nose. Notes of lemon fruits spoil the palate, while a light minerality is also present. Well-balanced and long lasting the Anthonij Rupert L’Ormarins Brut Classique knows how to impress until the last drop.
L'Ormarins the main estate in the Anthonij Rupert Wyne portfolio is situated in the Franschhoek area. L’Ormarins wine estate, one of the oldest in the Franschhoek Valley, was acquired by the late Dr Anton Rupert in 1969 and is now under the ownership of Johann Rupert. The estate produces award-winning wines, L’Ormarins being just one of the farms and brands within the Anthonij Rupert stable. The farm has a combination of both low-lying land and moderate-to-steep slopes. There is an altitude difference of 385m between the lowest (165m) and the highest (580m) points on the farm.
