Lot 66

Meerlust
Merlot, 2000
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
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 . 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.

 Wine Storage



’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*
