Meerlust Rubicon Unspecified South Africa South Africa Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Red Bottle-Low Stock 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"One of the best vintages of Rubicon to date, and for the price it’s a fantastic value that’s great for building up your cellar. Right now, the wine is still young and tight, with firm, gripping tannins that need some time to mellow. Fortunately, there’s a great concentrated black-fruit core and enough acidity alongside the tannins to support long-term aging. Spicy and earthy, with accents of black tea, cedar and crushed violets. Try after 2016...92" WE 05/12

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

It has a well-defined, quite opulent mint tinged bouquet with touches of macerated red cherries, red currant and sloes. The palate is medium-bodied with a toasty entry and good depth.

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.
