Description

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.



Grapes

69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc



Viticulture

Decomposed granite mixed with clay.



Wine Making

The varieties were fermented separately in steel tanks for 10 days. After malo-lactic fermentation the wines were blended in a ratio of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc. Once blended the wine was matured in Nevers barriques for 24 months. 80% new wood and 20% second fill. After bottling, the wine was further matured for 24 months before release.



Tasting Notes

Intense, opaque ruby core with cerise rim. Powerful primary nose of black currant, cigar box, smoked meat and minerals promising long maturation potential. On the palate the wine shows remarkable approachability with intense dark fruit juiciness coming from a renowned Cabernet Sauvignon vintage. Tannins are still structured but there is plenty of fruit density to reward further aging.



Food Matching

Venison, game, pot roast and noble cheese.
