Tasting Notes
Hannes Myburghs Rubicon, from his famous old Meerlust estate, was the first Bordeaux blend made in South Africa and is still recognised as one of the best. The impressive 2016 vintage has a nose of leafy cassis and herbs and smoky black fruits on the palate with ripe tannins and good length. Drinking now but ages very well. One of the best vintages for a while now.
