About:   Long recognised for producing world-class wines, Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756.  Today, the traditional dedication to the art of winemaking continues under the guidance of Hannes Myburgh, 8th generation custodian of the 17th Century national monument.  Meerlust, with its historic manor house, classic wine cellar, family cemetery, dovecote and bird sanctury is situated 15km south of Stellenbosch, with the blue crescent of False Bay a mere 5km away. 

Wines are only made from grapes grown on the estate which is uniquely positioned for the production of wines with exceptional complexity and character.  In the summertime, ocean breezes and evening mists roll in from the coast to cool the vineyards.  The grapes ripen slowly, thus achieving full, concentrated varietal flavours.

The soils consist of predominantly deep, well drained Hutton ad Clovelly soil types, affording the vies excellent drought resistance and an ideal substrata for producing concentrated, complex wines.  

Tasting Notes:  The Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon has an intense, vivid purple colour with slight graduation 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.
