MEERLUST Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Meerlust’s Rubicon hogs the limelight but their straight Cabernet Sauvignon offers phenomenal value for money – as the Vivino wine rating app has previously noted “similar wines usually cost 40% more”.
Achieving a warmth and richness that their rivals in Bordeaux will always struggle to match Meerlust’s Cabernet Sauvignon is an intense display of plum crumble cigar box blackberry jam graphite prune dried leaves nutmeg cream fennel seed and liquorice. A gloriously autumnal wine that will see you through the colder months and all the roasts and comfort food they bring with them.
The Myburgh family has been making wine at Meerlust Estate for eight generations stretching back to 1756 - 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 on top of 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.
