Quick Overview

The Rupert & Rothschild partnership was formed in 1997 by the late Dr Anton Rupert of South Africa and the late Baron Edmond de Rothschild of France. Their vision and guiding principles were carried forward by their sons, the late Anthonij Rupert and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild. Today the Rupert family and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild share this prestigious partnership in wine production.


Alluring raspberry, blackcurrant and plum aromas with hints of pine nettle and fresh coriander. Polished, silky tannins unfold on the palate with flavours of cranberry and dark chocolate.

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES: Pure, dark black currant and plum aromas combined with cedar wood and graphite nuances. Abundant fresh blueberry and boysenberry flavours with lavish, fine textured tannins and a lingering aftertaste.
