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. The blend was made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and with the traditional method, the second fermentation in the bottle.

Anthonij Rupert Wines

The wine farm L’ Ormarins is located on the foothills of the mighty Groot Drakenstein Mountains in the picturesque Franschhoek. Since 1969, it has been in possession of the family Rupert; it is even more inseparably connected with Anthonij Rupert Wines today and has become the undisputed heart. Besides L’ Ormarins, there are three other farms that belong to Anthonij Rupert Wines: Altima, Riebeeksriver and Rooderust. Through their different locations, it is possible to provide the ideal growth conditions for each grape variety and consciously emphasize the best features of the different vines. This is how Johann Rupert managed to create an impressive memorial for his brother with Anthonij Rupert Wines which continues to live his claim to produce excellent wines every day.

Back to the Beginnings...

The winery L’ Ormarins can look back on a long history which in today’s time can be noticed in many areas. The name alone gives away the founding through the French Huguenot Jean Roi in 1694 who named the land after his home Lourmarin in France. He had been cultivating vines on the impressive slopes of the Drakenstein Valley yet the great orchards were also an important pillar. Until the purchase by Dr. Anton Rupert in 1969, L’ Ormarins had often changed owners and had increasingly focused on viniculture. In 1833, it had even produced the first South African champion white wine and brandy but only under the family Rupert, especially under Anton Rupert’s son Anthonij, the winery finally managed to permanently create noble top class wines.

...and yet Discover New Possibilities

Under this guiding principle, Jean Roi had already laid the cornerstones for excellent wine production of Anthonij Rupert Wines. This can especially be seen in the historic cellar that can now be admired again in its original state after laborious restoration. Previously, families living in the surrounding areas brought their own grapes in order to let their wine mature there. The coats of arms on the large, old oak barrels confirm this old tradition that had meant a huge innovation at that time. The new Anthonij Rupert cellar was finished in 2005 and houses state-of-the-art technology and works with gravity supported technology. However, when it comes to selecting the wines, good old manual labour is still used – this is how Anthonij Rupert Wines successfully, as numerous international awards show, unites old tradition with modern cellar technology.
