Meerlust Rubicon

13 in stock

Classic Rubicon on the nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spice notes. The palate is full bodied and structured by beautifully sleek, ripe tannins which restrain the vibrant dark fruit.

68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot

Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Today, the dedication to quality winemaking continues under the guidance of 8th generation, Hannes Myburgh. Cellar Master, Chris Williams has worked on the estate since 1995 and has been in charge of winemaking since 2004. The name Meerlust means “pleasure of the sea”, as the property is situated 5km from False Bay (and 15km south of Stellenbosch), where the cooling influence of the coast allows the grapes ripen slowly.
