It is unlikely that you will find two better South African Wines pack in the Same Gift Pack!
Meerlust Rubicon 750ml Very deep, youthfull colour, intense almost purple hue. Very classic Rubicon nose with violets, ripe plum, cedarwood and intense spiceynesss. Still very young but brooding, promising further maturation potential. The palate is full bodied, structured but packed with fresh dark fruit and rounded, linear tannins.
Meerendal Pinotage Heritage Block 2006 750ml Very deep, almost opaque purple colour with a bluish tinge. Spicy red and black fruit aromas supported by strong bramble type characters on initial nose. Prune, plum and ripe dark cherry follow with a backing of rich fruit cake, spice and sweet vanilla. Big, full well rounded mouth with satin smooth flow across the palate yet distinct but supple tannin undertone. Beautifully integrated oak. Grows in the mouth. Already showing good complexity but has lots more development to come. Great balance with classy elegance. Very attractive now but will well repay some patient bottle maturation over next half dozen years. If Meerendal history is anything to go by this wine should continue to develop for easily 12 to 15 years.
