Lot 119

Meerendal
Pinotage, 1982
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
History was made in 1714 when Christina Stans, widow of the first owner, planted 60,000 vines on the rolling hills of Meerendal. Meerendal is home to one of the 4 oldest Pinotage blocks in SA, planted in 1955. Much like the 70s, the even vintages are the standouts from the 80s, with 1982 being probably the finest of them all.
