About this Item

Merlot, 2001
1 (1 x 1) 3000ml

Meerlust Estate, owned by the Myburgh family, has been in the family for eight generations. Located 5km from False Bay, the property was given the name 'Meerlust' from the original owner, which means 'pleasure of the sea'. The Meerlust name is synonymous with tradition, elegance and longevity. In fact, it was their Cabernet Sauvignon, produced since 1975, that was the first to carry the Meerlust label.

Critics Ratings

'Mushroom, tomato leaf and slightly dank nose. More depth and clarity with time in the glass. Remarkably fresh, succulent and gentle palate. Good structure. Drink now to 2030.' - Roland Peens (Feb 2021), 92/100.

'Good, deep colour for a 20yo Merlot. Plums, fennel, bouquet garni and roasted herbs. Probably one of the most delicious wines on sale, the 2001 has lots of succulent primary fruit nicely measured by grippy but fine tannins and lively acidity'. - Higgo Jacobs (Feb 2021), 94/100
