Anthonij Rupert L'Ormarins Brut Classique NV

Western Cape, South AfricaThis was made in Anthonij Rupert’s sparkling cellar, La Garonne, in Franschhoek, but the wine comes from various cooler spots and a variety of soils around the Western Cape. This release is a blend of 59/41 Chardonnay/Pinot Noir from Franschhoek, Elandskloof, Darling and Robertson and spends 24-48 months on the lees before a dosage approximately 9g/L. This sophisticated fizz carries toast, red apple, brioche on the palate, with an easy swell of acidity, and a riff of salted stones on the finish. Lovely intensity, while maintaining elegance and prestige; a very drinkable and accessible MCC.Tasted: 03 June 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 40.00 private wine shops Producer: Anthonij RupertDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
