Estate Red 2016 - Meerlust


Estate Red 2016


Meerlust constantly amazes us. Their ability to produce exceptional wines in both a Bordeaux- and Burgundy-style is uncanny. Their 2016 Estate Red takes a classic Claret blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot and beefs it up with South African sunshine and charm.

Big, juicy and round, Meerlust Red is an eruption of cassis, plum crumble, blackberry, dark chocolate, vanilla and exotic spices. This ever-popular style is the full-bodied kind that caused us to all fall in love with New World wine in the first place, and it’s screaming out for barbeques, steaks and robust flavours.

The Myburgh family has been making wine at Meerlust Estate for eight generations stretching back to 1756. And to think that some people call this the New World! Drive up the long, palm tree-lined driveway and you’ll discover the iconic white manor house atop a granite outcrop 5km from False Bay. The hot vineyards are cooled by the refreshing ocean breezes, helping the Myburghs to create wines with finesse.
