2003 Meerlust Rubicon
Iconic claret-style red & one of SA’s most famous wines. Longevity enhanced by 69% cabernet component with 19% merlot and 12% cabernet franc in usual cohort roles. Captures vintage charm: elegantly expressive blackberry/cassis fruit, smoky oak accompaniment with hint clove.
Wine.comA classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this wine is the culmination of the Myburgh family's dream of making a truly remarkable Bordeaux-style wine. Meerlust Rubicon is well-balanced with a cigar box and spicy tobacco bouquet. Smooth, firm tannins provide structure and depth with excellent aging potential.
