Meerlust Rubicon 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2013 vintage enjoyed perfect conditions, similar to the 2009. A classic Rubion nose: notes of violets, ripe plum, cedar wood, licorice and a stony minerality are all present. The palate is full is full bodied, structured yet beautifully sleek, with vibrant dark fruit. A blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot; the wine spent a total of 20 months in 65 % new French Nevers. Enjoy over the next 10 - 15years.

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

Intensives, dichtes und dunkles Rubinrot, Im Bukett röstig, schwarze Schokolade, enorme Aromavielfalt entfaltet sich, edel, finessereich mit sehr viel Aromadruck, im Gaumen noch jung, zeigt ein sehr reiche Konzentration mit perfekter Eleganz, die massigen Tannine wirken moderat und perfekt abgerundet, ein wahrhaft grosser Wein! Wiird sich sehr schön entwickeln.

Tiefes Purpurrot, würzig, an Tabak und Zedernholz erinnernd, sehr finessereich, dieses Bukett ist ein Erlebnis, im Gaumen zeigt dieser Wein seine ganze Klasse. Wunderbar ausgeglichen, ein sehr charaktervoller, der trotz seiner Mächtigkeit einen unerhörten Charme entwickelt.
