Rubicon 2013, Meerlust – Magnum

£59.95 per bottle

About this wine

The 2013 Meerlust Rubicon is a classic expression of this iconic Cape blend – 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot.  Very classic Rubicon nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spiciness. A typical liquorice note and stony minerality is also evident on the nose. Still youthful and intense, promising further maturation potential. The palate is full bodied, structured by beautifully sleek, ripe tannins which restrain the vibrant dark fruit typical of this vintage, giving the wine an opulent texture which is kept focused by the linear acidity. The wine lingers on the palate with creamy fruit mouthfiilling tannins.

Ageing potential: 15 – 20 years from vintage date under ideal cellar conditions
