About this Item

Cabernet Sauvignon, 1984
3 (1 x 3) 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. 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.

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
