Meerlust Estate Red is a staple in our house, and we're so pleased to have it on our list. The wine is a Bordeaux style blend from just south of Stellenbosch, which has an intense, dark purple colour and bright, joyful youthfulness. The nose is expressive with powerful blackcurrant, plum, exotic spice and subtle floral aromas. It's a medium-bodied wine but the flavours are intense, bursting with black fruits, cassis, vanilla and dark chocolate. The tannins are soft and silky and there's a freshness which lends an elegance to the wine. The wine has a persistent and long-lasting aftertaste, which demonstrates the quality of the grapes. A wine that's very close to our hearts, and one we'll hope you'll love too!

The Meerlust Red 2017 is a blend of 55% Cabernet Franc, 33% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyards were green-harvested during veraison to reduce yield and increase concentration, tannin ripeness and fruit definition. The high proportion of Cabernet Franc indicates the great quality that this variety showed in 2017, the Merlot adding suppleness and juicy fruit. 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. 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.

Vegetarian, but not Vegan The grapes were handpicked and fermented separately before undergoing malolactic fermentation in new and seasoned oak, before selection, blending and bottling. The 2017 Meerlust Red was barrel aged in seasoned Nevers French oak casks for 17 months.
