Meerlust Estate Rubicon 2017, 6 x 75cl
The 2017 Rubicon is another superb expression of this iconic Cape wine. Very deep and youthful in colour with an intense, almost purple hue. A very classic Rubicon on the nose with hints of violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spiciness. A typical liquorice note and stony minerality also evident on the nose.
The palate is full-bodied and structured by beautifully sleek, ripe tannins which restrain the vibrant dark fruit typical of this vintage. The wine lingers on the palate with creamy fruit mouthfiilling linear tannins.
Best served with venison, game, beef, pot roast and noble cheese. This wine is still young and intense, promising further maturation potential.
