About this Item

2000 Merlot
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.

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

’Meaty mocha merlot’ isn’t the sort of mantra GDC would employ but it’s irresistible here: this outstanding Merlot evokes gamebird, choc associations. 00 more intense; arresting savoury bacon (not smoked!) mingles with delicate violets; finish taut but more approachable at same age than 99.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2004, 4.5*
