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.
From a very special vintage, the beguiling and pure Rubicon 1982 is one of the greatest SA wines of the 1980s. This incredibly rare double magnum has been stored at Bergkelder since release and should show supreme verve for another couple decades.

Cerise-brick edge. Spicy, with camphor, mushroomy, earthy whiffs, primary fruit all gone but leaving behind a lovely integration and a harmonious finish. 16.5/20 (750ml). - Michael Fridjhon, World of Fine Wine (2014)
