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. Long-standing winemaker, Chris Williams, produced an elegant and classic wine in the 2007 vintage. It gained a position on Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100 Wines of the Year in 2012.

‘Approaching its 30th birthday, cab-based blend with merlot, cab franc still a Cape benchmark. Splendid 2007 (5*) reflects work in the vineyard, with remarkably intense fruit core, currently masked by firm, integrated tannin which should preserve charms to 2025. Like 2006, restrained not showy.’  Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2012, 5*
