The 2017 vintage kicked off very early for Anthonij Rupert Wyne on the 6th of January this year. We started the harvest with Chardonnay from our La Garonne farm for the Brut.
The quality of the grapes have been phenomenal and the wines of this vintage that have already been made are looking very promising. The grapes have been very healthy and the flavours in the wines are superb and very typical of the different cultivars. The colour of the reds are most satisfactory and our vineyards are in great shape despite the ongoing drought.
I want to complement our farm managers on their devotion and effort. Our winemakers are very excited to receive good quality grapes - it just makes it easier to produce excellent and quality wines!
There are many exciting events to look forward to at Anthonij Rupert Wyne with the extension being done on our red wine cellar as well the building of a new wine storage facility.
