The iconic Meerlust Rubicon is among South Africa's most highly anticipated releases every year. Equally, this, the 2015 vintage is also widely recognized as being among SA's most iconic vintages yet, making this year's Rubicon release all the more memorable. As yet unrated by most critics, London based South African Master of Wine, Greg Sherwood's, 97 point rating sets the bar high. This along with winemaker Chris Williams' own confidence in the excellence of this vintage, leaves no doubt to the investment potential of the 2015 Rubicon.
The 2015 vintage shows incredible focus, a perfumed nose of red fruit, cherries, rose petals and tealeaf, along with subtle evidence of new oak in toasted vanilla notes. Similarly the palate shows freshness in fruit and great concentration, supported by ripe and elegant tannins, which will benefit from- and carry it through- a remarkable 2 decades of evolution in bottle.
