Description

Stellenbosch is the most famous wine-producing region in South Africa. The town, in Western Cape's Coastal Region, is steeped in wine producing history and is home to the country’s best-known wine estates. Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted grape variety, and is often combined with Merlot to create Bordeaux Blend wines.

Red Bordeaux Blends are known for their powerful structure and deep flavors. Dark fruits and berries such as plum and blackcurrant are commonly used to describe the flavors of red Bordeaux, although there is an unlimited range of terms that have been ascribed to them. Tannins tend to be relatively high in these wines, giving them a firm structure.

Tasting note: "The 2017 Rubicon is a classic vintage of this iconic Cape wine. Very deep, youthful colour, and intense almost purple hue. Quintessential Rubicon nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood, fennel and intense spiciness. A typical liquorice note also evident on the nose. Still young and intense, promising further maturation potential. The palate is full bodied, structured but packed with fresh dark fruit and rounded, linear tannins promising long beneficial maturation. A stand out vintage of Rubicon displaying all the charm of a perfect vintage from mature vines."

The Winery

A harmonious red, offering a bright seam of ripe and tangy red currant and black raspberry fruit flavors layered with light, taut tannins and an iron-tinged underpinning. Hints of espresso, wild sage and pink peppercorn show on the lively finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. -WS
