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.

 
Long-standing winemaker, Chris Williams, produced an elegant and classic wine in the 2007 vintage. It gained a position on Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100 Wines of the Year in 2012.

‘Approaching its 30th birthday, cab-based blend with merlot, cab franc still a Cape benchmark. Splendid 2007 (5 stars) reflects work in the vineyard, with remarkably intense fruit core, currently masked by firm, integrated tannin which should preserve charms to 2025. Like 2006, restrained not showy.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2012, 5*
