`Meerlust`, meaning `pleasure of the sea`, was thus named as the farm house sits on a granite outcrop only 5 km from False Bay. Only 15 km from Stellenbosh, the vineyards enjoy the cooling effects of afternoon mists and cooling breezes which roll in from the ocean. This premium quality, award winning Cabernet Sauvignon is made from low yielding mature vines and is intense in flavour with blackcurrant and cedar flavours.
Made from 100% low yielding Cabernet Sauvignon vines, this rich red was aged in French oak for 20months, 75% of which were in new oak barrels.
Meerlust Estate has been part of the Myburgh family for eight generations, dating back to 1756. Long recognised for producing world-class wines, the Meerlust Estate is singularly rich in charm and history.Today the family tradition of dedication to winemaking continues under the guidance of Hannes Myburgh who studied winemaking at Geisenheim in Germany and Château Lafite in France. Chris Williams was appointed Cellar Master at Meerlust prior to the 2004 harvest. Williams studied winemaking at Elsenburg College in Stellenbosch and was apprenticed to Giorgio Dalla Cia at Meerlust for five years before Giorgio’s retirement in 2004.Meerlust is situated 15 kilometres south of Stellenbosch, with False Bay just five kilometres away. The Estate 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.
