The Rupert & Rothschild partnership was formed in 1997 by the late Dr Anton Rupert of South Africa and the late Baron Edmond de Rothschild of France. Their vision and guiding principles were carried forward by their sons, the late Anthonij Rupert and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild. Today the Rupert family and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild share this prestigious partnership in wine production.

The grapes were hand-picked from beginning February to end March 2016.

Fermented in stainless steel tanks with extended skin contact. Malolactic fermentation occurred in French oak barrels.

Matured for 16 months in 225 litre French oak barrels. The wine has an ageing potential of at least 7 years from vintage.

Food pairing

Springbok shoulder and aromatic potato pudding with a gastrique of port cherry and puffed barley.
