Meerlust Estate is widely recognised as one of South Africa’s leading wine producers. It has been owned by the Myburgh family since 1756 and makes the country’s iconic Rubicon, which, by modern global wine prices, remains a relative bargain. The Rubicon is a classic Bordeaux blend (61% Cabernet, 23% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot) intense in colour and rich on the nose. The complexity in this wine is exciting with primary fruit flavours such as cassis, plum and black cherry. Classic Cabernet characteristics like cedar smoke, cigar box aromas and liquorice are pronounced on the nose. The tannins are ripe and silky and the finish is very satisfying. Perfect with venison, game or mature cheese.
