The iconic Meerlust Rubicon is among South Africa's most highly anticipated new releases every year. This, the 2012 vintage, was a near perfect growing season, perfect quality fruit of great concentration resulting in a very classic Rubicon nose: violets, ripe plum, cedar wood, anise and intense spiciness. Even after a few years in bottle, the 2012 still shows great youthful fresh fruit on the palate, promising a long further maturation potential. The palate is full bodied, structured by beautifully ripe tannins which restrain the vibrant dark fruit typical of this vintage.
63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot
