Rupert and Rothschild
In 1997, under the leadership of Dr Anton Rupert and Baron Edmond de Rothschild, Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons was established. Both men later relinquished the reigns to their respective sons; Anthonij Rupert and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild. Following the passing of Anthonij Rupert in 2001, his older brother Johann Rupert and sister Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg assumed his position. The brand produces three distinctive wines; a single varietal Chardonnay, Rupert & Rothschild Baroness Nadine named after Baroness Nadine de Rothschild, wife of Edmond de Rothschild. A flagship Bordeaux blend; Rupert & Rothschild Baron Edmond de Rothschild named after the late Baron Edmond de Rothschild and a classic red blend; Rupert & Rothschild Classique, one of the most widely sold and sought after South African red wines in its category.
Crisp, Lemon notes with subtle grapefruit nuances and smooth creamy nougat flavours, folowed by lingering macadamia nut undertones.
