To produce the finest quality wine, meticulous attention is given to the vineyard and cellar practices. The viticulture and winemaking team work closely together during the green harvest, the harvest, the pruning and the blending. Preserving the grapes in their optimal state prior to initiating the winemaking process is truly one of the greatest secrets of producing exceptional wine. At Rupert and Rothschild the bunches are carefully harvested by hand. After destemming, the berries are hand-sorted thus enabling the winemaker to work with the finest quality juice. Intervention during the winemaking process is kept to a minimum. The red grapes remain on the skins during which time punch-downs are carried out, blending the skins with the juice. Once fermentation is complete the quality free-run juice is drawn from the skin. Finally the remaining skins undergo gentle pressing.

With each vintage the entire red wine production is matured in small French oak barrels, adding balance and complexity to the final product.

Enjoy as an aperitif or recommended with slow cooked lamb or lightly seared fillet of beef with truffle mashed potatoes.
