Classique is the second wine produced at Rupert and Rothschild Vignerons, in Simonsberg South Africa. The partnership was formed in 1997 and now produces three wines, all of which are richly concentrated, complex, yet contrasting. Classique is always based on a Bordeaux blend, and traditionally has consisted of almost equal amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. This wonderfully complex and smoky wine offers immediate charm, alongside the potential to cellar for a decade from vintage.
Aromas of red plum, raspberries and cherries are prominent, layered with forest floor and oak spice expressed as toasted caramel and walnut. The palate has a fresh red fruit core with soft-textured tannins and good persistence. Pair this delicious wine with an oak-smoked duck breast, roasted baby beetroots, beetroot puree, crispy Jerusalem artichokes, and a roasted cherry jus. The earthiness of both the artichokes and the beetroots, complimented by the jus will round off this wine beautifully.
