Meerlust Estate has been part of the Myburgh family tradition for eight generations, dating back to 1756. Long recognised for producing world-class wines, the Meerlust Estate is singularly rich in charm and history.


100% Pinot Noir


Selected from 3 clones of Pinot Noir with an average age of 13 years old, situated on loamy gravel topsoil with clay sub-soil. 40% vendage vert (green harvesting cluster removal) at 60% veraison to ensure concentration and even ripening.

Wine Making

Grapes hand picked and selected in the coolness of morning before crushing. Fermentation in small stainless steel cuves with regular pigeage for gentle extraction. Partial un-innoculated fermentation before pressing directly in French oak tight grained Hogsheads for malo-lactic fermentation. After racking, the wine was matured in 70% new Alliers Higsheads and 30% second fill Hogsheads for 11 months before bottling.

Tasting Notes

Deep opaque ruby colour with a garnet rim. Exhuberent floral and musky nose with hints of violets, cherries and baking spice. The palate is youthfull with bright acidity, juicy red fruit flavours and silky, supple tannins giving the wine a good length.

Food Matching

White and red meats, Parma ham, grilled linefish, Tuna, wild mushrooms and traditional cheeses.
