Rubicon 2014, Meerlust – Magnum

£59.95 per bottle

About this wine

The 2014 Meerlust Rubicon displays the restraint and elegance of the cooler 2014 vintage.  A beautifully perfumed floral nose of violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spiciness with underlying liquorice and stony minerality notes. A medium bodied palate, structured by beautifully sleek, ripe tannins which restrain the vibrant delicate 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 mouth-filling tannins.  This wine is still youthful and intense, promising further maturation potential.

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