Rupert & Rothschild Classique Cabernet. South Africa is known for yielding brilliant results from its national vine variety, pinotage, but it is also home to exceptional terroirs for cabernet sauvignon. The Rupert & Rothschild blends,  aim to show what this big grape can achieve on South African soil with spicy, smooth and balanced wines.


Wine type: red wine.

Vintage and alcohol content: 2014 - 13,5°

Region: Breede Valley - South Africa

Grape/blend: 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot.

Type soil: this fabulous terroir benefits from the cool temperatures carried by Antarctica's Benguela current and from strong sun exposure that helps the grapes ripen in a quasi-Mediterranean climate. The vineyard's soil is a mix of decomposed granite and red clay..

Colour: cloudy purple.

Aroma: fresh raspberry aromas with pomegranate undertones.

Tasting notes: subtle, smooth, balanced palate with lingering cranberry and cedar-wood nuances.

Editor's note: It began in 1690 when Jean and Daniel Nortier, brothers from an exiled protestant Huguenot family, decided to build a farm in Fredericksburg, South Africa. The brothers found a landscape at the foot of Simonsberg Mountain that reminded them of France, and began planting grapevines. The vineyard grew and ultimately transformed itself into one of the biggest historic wineries in South Africa. In 1997, under the leadership of Benjamin de Rothschild, the Compagnie Vinicole sought to diversify its production and took an interest in "New World" wine-making. The Baron chose to team up with the Rupert family, which then owned Fredericksburg, so that together they could craft great wines from this southern hemisphere terroir. The Compagnie Vinicole bought 50% of the estate and embarked on an ambitious project with its South African partner: "Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons". A modern wine cellar was built the first year.
