Meerlust

Meerlust estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Today, the tradition and dedication to the art of winemaking continues under the guidance of Hannes Myburgh, eighth generation custodian of this seventeenth-century national monument. Meerlust is widely considered a 'first growth' of Cape wine, producing world-class wines.

Meerlust Chardonnay

Very bright, polished platinum with green, vivacious hue. Complex, appealing nose with quince, citrus and floral notes developing onto lemon cream, oatmeal and marzipan richness. On the palate the wine is full bodied & generous, but still balanced by crisp acidity.

2012 was a standout vintage for Pinot Noir at Meerlust with the wines showing pronounced lifted perfume on the nose with red berry fruit, musk, wild mushrooms and hints of savoury richness and spice and a clean vibrant minerality.
