Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon is an impressive Cab Sav from Stellenbosch with complexity and balance. It has an intense, vivid purple colour and classic aromas of cassis, plum and dark fruits, as well as cigar box - one of the markers of great Cabernet. On the palate the wine is full bodied and impressively structured with juicy flavours of intense blackcurrant and plum. Whilst full-bodied, it has a lovely freshness to it, and the tannins lend a rich, bold structure. A great example of this grape variety from one of our favourite winemakers!
Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Today, the dedication to quality winemaking continues under the guidance of 8th generation, Hannes Myburgh. Cellar Master, Chris Williams, who has worked on the estate since 1995 has been in charge of winemaking since 2004. The name Meerlust means “pleasure of the sea”, as the property is situated 5km from False Bay (and 15km south of Stellenbosch), with the cooling influence of the coast, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly.
