About this Item

2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Meerlust Estate, owned by the Myburgh family, has been in the family for eight generations. Located 5km from False Bay, the property was given the name 'Meerlust' from the original owner, which means 'pleasure of the sea'. The Meerlust name is synonymous with tradition, elegance and longevity. In fact, it was their Cabernet Sauvignon, produced since 1975, that was the first to carry the Meerlust label.

Critics Ratings

It has a lifted, intense bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, briar, cedar and light tobacco scents. A subtle marine influence lends complexity. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry, offering graphite-tinged black fruit, much better weight in the mouth than the 2015 “red”, and a gentle grip on the finish. This is an impressive Cabernet from Meerlust that should age with style.’ - Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100 (Aug 2018)

‘The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon starts with tones of oak and earth with a black fruit core. The full-bodied palate is dense and chewy, filled with blackberry, dark cherry and plum and expressing soft oak notes of vanilla and nutmeg. It is precise and grippy with spicy focus, giving hints of cedar and graphite, with a lingering, concentrated finish.’ - Antony Mueller, Wine Advocate, 88/100 (Oct 2019)
