International businessman Johann Rupert’s model winemaking enterprise, named for his late brother, Anthonij, has the 18th century L’Ormarins Estate as its Franschhoek home. The venture encompasses an internationally successful quintet of brands, namely: Anthonij Rupert, Cape of Good Hope, L’Ormarins, Terra del Capo and Jean Roi.
The vineyards selected for the Anthonij Rupert wines are planted on very specific sites and soil types. The canopies of each block and the final yield of each site is managed precisely to express the character of the different varietal and location.
The wine is then aged for 24 months in 80% new French oak. After bottling the wine is finally bottle-aged for another 24 months.
