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.

’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*
