Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. In 1980, after several years of experimentation and visits to Bordeaux, the new blend was born and it was unlike anything South Africa had seen before. The introduction was a Rubicon moment for the South African fine wine market. A mature and elegant, increasingly rare vintage of South Africa’s most famous red wine.
‘Quiet understatement, free of both forward fruit and weighty, alcoholic Cape statements has been a byword of French-speaking proprietor Myburgh and Dall Cia. A measured, tasty, grapey vinosity is the hallmark. '92 integrated, very pleasing, obviously from same stable.’ Platter’s SA Wine Guide 1998, 4*
