Meerlust Cabernet Magnum 2013

Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum 2013

Tasting Notes

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from soils of decomposed granite over clay. The vineyards are approximately 3 miles from the ocean and receive the cooling sea breezes. 2013 was a good vintage that will age gracefully for 10 plus years

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

4 1/2 Stars Platter SA Wine Guide - Classic Stellenbosch cab: brambly fruit with cedar, spice & touch of fynbos/dried herb. All building blocks – polished cassis fruit, lithe tannins, judicious oaking (70% new), invigorating acid & moderate 13.5% alcohol – in place, melded & balanced in svelte 2013.



Winemaker Notes

The Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon has an intense, vivid purple colour with slight gradation at the rim. On the nose the wine shows intense cassis, plum and classic cedar wood-cigar box notes with lifted dark fruit aromas. On the palate the wine is full bodied and impressively structured. Intense blackcurrant and plum fruit bolstered by refined tannins and fresh natural acidity. The palate is rich and dense with a wonderful lacy tannic structure.
