One of our biggest selling reds, the Meerlust Red is made from the fruit that`s not quite good enough for the celebrated Rubicon, but is still an excellent expression of the style. This wine has an intense, opaque deep ruby colour, bright and vivacious in the glass, very youthful. The nose is expressive with lifted dark fruit, cassis, plum, chocolate and black cherry. There is a pronounced minerality on the nose with graphite, cedar smoke and cigar box bouquet. On the palate the Red is open textured with a rich juiciness, cassis fruit and savoury quality already, while the ripe, structured tannins will allow further bottle aging.
