Cabernet Sauvignon, 1978
3 (1 x 3) 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. After the successful 1975 which won young wine awards, the richer 1978 shows more Cabernet Sauvignon character and power. The 1978 Rubicon remains of the finest and longest-aging wines of the 1970s.
