Protea Merlot 2020, Anthonij Rupert Wyne, Coastal Region
The Protea Merlot offers up boisterous black fruit aromatics on the nose, with hints of blueberry, cherry and undertones of chocolate. There is a juiciness to the palate marked by supple tannins.
Anthonij Rupert Wyne was founded on the farm, L`Ormarins in Franschhoek. Originally owned by the late Anthonij Rupert, who passed away in 2001, the farm was eventually taken over by his brother Johann Rupert in 2003 and the brand named after him. It was Johann Rupert who constructed a state-of-the-art winemaking facility, catapulting the farm into a prestigious wine estate and the beginnings of what is now a sprawling enterprise.
