About this Item

Merlot, 1994
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Having previously visited Bordeaux, Nico Myburgh realised that the terroir there was very similar to that of his farm near the Eerste River. In 1978, Giorgio joined Nico at Meerlust in which was to be a dynamic, fruitful decades-long friendship and partnership between owner-vintner and cellarmaster.
 Having produced Cabernet Sauvignon since 1975 and the Rubicon in 1980, after several years of experimentation with fellow winemaker Giorgio Dalla Cia, a single expression of Merlot became one of the Cape’s best.

Critics Ratings

'Georgio Dalla Cia's passion. As a Friulian, he was weaned on this grape. 94 has sweet, luscious good fruit, with long reach but in elegant mode.' - Pick of the bunch, John Platter South African Wines 1997
