About this Item

Cabernet Sauvignon, 1982
1 (1 x 1) 3000ml
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.
The 1982 vintage was one of the standouts of the era, producing wines of remarkable endurance, especially in the larger formats. This 3l bottle is in pristine condition, having been stored at the Bergkelder Vinoteque in its early life and at Wine Cellar thereafter.

Sold at the 2017 Nederburg Auction for just under R12,000 per magnum (1.5l) bottle.
