Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. In 1980, after several years of experimentation and visits to Bordeaux, Nico Myburgh and Giorgio Dalla Cia produced the icon Rubicon and one of SA’s first Merlots. The 1989 featured 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and was son Hannes’ first vintage in charge.

‘1989’s oak-fruit mélange clear notch ahead of 1988 which has strong, forward bouquet – bit smoky, good plummy fruit backing. Both gold medals at Intervin, North America’s major international wine competition. 1989 only SA wine so honoured. All-new French oak well-toasted for 18 months.’  Platter’s SA Wine Guide 1996, 5 stars
