Meerlust Rubicon

The oldest run family wine estate in South Africa, bought by the Myburgh family in 1756. At only 5km from False Bay, the ocean plays a significant role in wine production. Ocean breezes and evening sea mists significantly lower temperatures to produce a climate for Bordeaux like than South African. Their take on a Bordeaux blend (70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc), was the first expression of the Bordeaux style in South Africa. Complex aromas of plums, spice and cedar wood. Full bodied on the palate with hints of licorice and more open in 2016 vintage to a higher percent of Merlot in the blend (29%).
