About this Item

1984 Cabernet Sauvignon
2 (1 x 2) 1500ml

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

'Traditionally of less rugged Cabernet mien, lighter to medium bodied, reflecting the Meerlust terroir of relatively cooler proximity to False Bay and pebbly loam soils. '84 Excellent, ample firm tannins for keeping, an appropriate wine to mark the transition from the style of earlier vintages to the new robustness.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 1990, 4*

'May turn out to be the best vintage of all' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 1985
