Rupert & Rothschild Classique 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant flavors of young berries, plums, liquorice and cassis with a hint of coriander and white pepper and a fresh, long finish. Rupert and Rothschild is one of South Africa’s aristocratic wine estates. The farm was formed in 1690 and was purchased by Anthonij Rupert in 1984, and since then the historic buildings and vineyards have been substantially modified. Superstar winemaking consultant Michel Rolland is employed here. Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons is a partnership in wine production on the historic French Huguenot farm Fredericksburg, between the Rupert family of South Africa and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild, son of the late Baron Edmond de Rothschild of France. The Rothschild family owns Château Clarke, a cru bourgeois in Bordeaux, and are partners in first-growth Château Lafite-Rothschild in Pauillac.*This wine is a "classic" Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.*

Rupert & Rothschild:
At the foot of the spectacular Simonsberg mountain in the Franschhock Valley lies the historic French Huguenot farm Fredericksburg, established in 1690 and now home to Rupert and Rothschild Vignerons. It was in this valley over 300 years ago that the early French Huguenots first discovered a terroir similar to that of certain winegrowing regions in France. Hence their decision to settle and cultivate vineyards here.
