TN : Rubicon 2005, Meerlust Estate, Stellenbosch, South Africa


Meerlust Estate has been owned by the Myburgh family for eight generations since 1756. Today, the estate is ran by Hannes Myburgh.



This wine is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 16% Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Sauvignon was grown on low yielding, predominantly biotite partially decomposed granite gravel topsoil rich in quartz and feldspar to a depth of approximately 600mm with a loamy clay subsoil. The Merlot vineyards were planted on more clay rich, yet well drained soils to ensure moisture retention and availability to the vines roots right through the summer.
The Cabernet Franc Vineyard is situated on a very well drained, stony Vilafontes soil with approximately 20% clay.

The Cabernets were given a relatively short cuvaison time to prevent over-extraction, but the Merlot was given a long post fermentation maceration to encourage complete polymerization of complex tannins and add a broad, juicy and ultra-silky texture to the blend as a whole. Malolactic fermentation was completed in barrel for 6 months before assessment and assemblage. The wine spent a total of 24 months in 75% new French Nevers oak with 25% 2nd Nevers and Alliers barrels.

The dry extract was 33.56, the residual Sugar was 2.45 grammes per litre, the pH was 3.76, total acidity was 5.57 grammes per litre, and the alcohol was 14.42%.

This wine was imported by Tryffelsvinet AB.

To be a noble charitable being is to from a philanthropic of openness to the mankind, an skill to trust uncertain things beyond your own manage, that can take you to be shattered in very outermost circumstances on which you were not to blame. That says something very impressive relating to the condition of the ethical passion: that it is based on a corporation in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a weed than like a treasure, something rather tenuous, but whose very item handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.
