About this Item

Rubicon, 1992
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Having previously visited Bordeaux, Nico Myburgh realised that the terroir there was very similar to that of his farm near the Eerste River. In 1978, Giorgio joined Nico at Meerlust in which was to be a dynamic, fruitful decades-long friendship and partnership between owner-vintner and cellarmaster.
 In 1980, after several years of experimentation and visits to Bordeaux, the new blend was born and it was unlike anything South Africa had seen before. The introduction was a Rubicon moment for the South African fine wine market. A mature and elegant, increasingly rare vintage of South Africa’s most famous red wine.

Critics Ratings

‘Quiet understatement, free of both forward fruit and weighty, alcoholic Cape statements has been a byword of French-speaking proprietor Myburgh and Dalla Cia. A measured, tasty, grapey vinosity is the hallmark. '92 integrated, very pleasing, obviously from same stable.’  Platter’s SA Wine Guide 1998, 4*
