Meerlust Rubicon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has a very deep, youthful color, and intense, almost purple hue. There is a very classic Rubicon nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spiciness. Still young and still intense, it promises further maturation potential. The palate is full bodied, structured but packed with fresh dark fruit and rounded, linear tannins. This wine pairs well with venison, game, pot roast and noble cheese. 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc

Long recognized for producing world-class wines, Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Today, the traditional dedication to the art of winemaking continues under the guidance of Hannes Myburgh, eighth generation custodian of this seventeenth-century national monument. Meerlust, with its historic manor house, classic wine cellar, family cemetery, dovecote and bird sanctuary is situated fifteen kilometers south of Stellenbosch, with the blue crescent of False Bay a mere five kilometers away. The Estate is uniquely positioned for the production of wines with exceptional complexity and character. In the summertime, ocean breezes and evening mists roll in from the coast to cool the vineyards. The grapes ripen slowly, thus achieving full, concentrated varietal flavours. The soil consists of predominantly deep, well drained Hutton and Clovelly soil types, affording the vines excellent drought resistance and an ideal substrata for producing concentrated, complex wines. One hundred and ten hectares are planted with varieties such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Pinot Noir. Read less

74% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot and 11% cabernet franc. Bright, saturated ruby-red. Brooding aromas of cassis, dark chocolate, licorice, violet and pepper. Dense, broad and sweet, with a youthful reserve to the intense flavors of dark berries, ... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A wine from in South Africa. 2007 Meerlust Rubicon 750ml
