A Merlot and Cabernet blend, Rubicon is one of the Cape's leading claret-style wines. Complex, ripe, plummy flavours owed in part to cool afternoon breezes, a result of Meerlust being the closest Stellenbosch estate to the sea.
‘Rubicon is an old classic, but in vintages such as 2016 – which have more Merlot and Cabernet Franc in the blend – it takes on a lighter touch and revels in its sheer drinkability. A wonderfully complex and fruity Bordeaux-style wine.’
