Continued Stellar Ratings Awarded For Anthonij Rupert Wyne

Anthonij Rupert Wyne in Franschhoek has been awarded four 5-star ratings and fourteen 4.5 star ratings for wines in their illustrious portfolio. These accolades were announced and featured in the latest edition of the internationally recognised Platter’s South African Wine Guide 2023, due for release later this month.


This year’s five star line-up includes L’Ormarins Blanc de Blancs 2017, the maiden release of L’Ormarins Private Cuvée 2014 also awarded as category winner, Cape of Good Hope Laing Groendruif 2021, and Cape of Good Hope Altima Sauvignon Blanc 2022. This is the 4th consecutive year that Cape of Good Hope Groendruif has been awarded the coveted 5-star rating. These latest accolades continue to reaffirm the team’s commitment to quality, producing the best possible from their vineyards and building an impressive track record for their wines.


The 2014 vintage and maiden release of Anthonij Rupert Wyne in Franschhoek  a wine which was eight years in the making is made exclusively from the Tête du Cuvée, hailing from selected vineyard blocks on the company’s high altitude Altima Estate. This pristine sumptuous and elegant wine composed of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir underwent an extraordinary 72 months of on the lees before disgorgement. It remains tangy and vivid with lemon and marmalade flavour coupled with sourdough notes broadening into a fantail of flavour. This exceptional Cap Classique can be purchased directly from the farm or via the estate’s online shop at R470 per bottle.


The statuesque and beautifully structured L’Ormarins Blanc de Blancs 2017, made from Chardonnay grapes presents with a mesmerizing fine stream of bubbles. The complex nose presents a distinct maritime breeze, brine, whiffs of cream cracker and lemon zest. A crisp, tangy citrus laden palate combined with rich biscuit and lees elements speaks of complexity and refinement all the way through to the complex l finish. Available online or directly from the Tasting Room at R230 per bottle.


As part of the Old Vines Initiative, the Semillon grapes for the carefully cultivated Cape of Good Hope Laing Groendruif 2021, were sourced from Henk Laing’s farm, Trekpoort – on the Skurfberg Mountains near Clanwilliam. An extraordinary textural wine with an enticing interplay of fynbos, nettle and grapefruit. This complex, engaging and highly limited wine shows perfect harmony between fruit and lees and will reward patience and careful cellaring. Although Cape of Good Hope Laing Groendruif 2021 is already sold out, the 2022 vintage is already available through the estate’s Cellar doors and online shop at R155 per bottle.


Another award-winning wine in the collection and completing the stellar 5-star line up is the Cape of Good Hope Altima Sauvignon Blanc 2022.  The Altima vineyard is situated in a pristine valley north of Villiersdorp and is surrounded by a steep mountain range that rises 1km from the valley floor. During the winter months these mountains are typically covered with snow and, coupled with the elevation of 600 to 700m, equates to a very cool climate. This unique terroir produces wines with a high natural acidity and upfront aromas. The wine is best described as displaying grapefruit, granadilla and subtle pea pod nuance further revealing its cool climate origin. The palate is textured and round, revealing lightly smoky lees element. Altima Sauvignon Blanc 2022 is available online, or directly from the estate’s cellar doors at R145 per bottle.
