Meerlust Rubicon 2016 75cl in Gift Tin 14% ABV
Meerlust Rubicon 2016
The 2016 Rubicon classic expression of this iconic Cape wine, presented in a stylish gift tin, a limited edition gift produced by Meerlust.
This Red Wine has a very deep, youthful colour, and intense almost purple hue. Very classic Rubicon nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spiciness.
A typical liquorice note and stony minerality 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 mouth-filling tannins.
