Aromer av ceder. Lite för syrlig.
Det var inte så imponerande.

Harmonizamos este Meerlust Wine Estate Rubicon Stellenbosch com o primeiro prato. Bebi com os meus amigos em casa.
A olho é cereja intenso. Aromas profundos: balsâmicos, violetas, mentolados. Sabor a chocolate e toffee.

Jeg kjøpte den på oppdrag fra en venn.
Kanten var nesten brun. Lukt av moden fruktkompott. Smak av skogsbær.
Jeg drakk den til grillspyd.

Reviews of other vintages of Meerlust Rubicon Stellenbosch 201602015


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 mouthfiilling tannins.
