Meerlust Estate has been part of the Myburgh family for eight generations, dating back to 1756. Long recognised for producing world-class wines, the Meerlust Estate is singularly rich in charm and history.
Meerlust is situated 15 kilometres south of Stellenbosch, with False Bay just five kilometres away. The Estate is uniquely positioned for the production of wines with exceptional complexity and character. In the summertime, ocean breezes and evening mists roll in from the coast to cool the vineyards. The grapes ripen slowly, thus achieving full, concentrated varietal flavours.

Now celebrating its quarter century, Rubicon was the first Bordeaux blend produced in South Africa, and has rightly maintained its iconic status since then. A blend of 74% Cabernet, 15% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc. If kept in the correct cellar conditions this wine can age for up to 25 years.

Five Stars - Platter's Wine Guide 2012. Very deep, youthful colour, intense almost purple hue. Very classic Rubicon nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spiciness. Still young and intense, promising further maturation potential. The palate is full bodied, structured but packed with fresh dark fruit and rounded, linear tannins.
