Long recognized for producing world-class wines, Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Today, the traditional dedication to the art of winemaking continues under the guidance of Hannes Myburgh, eighth generation custodian of this seventeenth-century national monument. Meerlust, with its historic manor house, classic wine cellar, family cemetery, dovecote and bird sanctuary is situated fifteen kilometers south of Stellenbosch, with the blue crescent of False Bay a mere five kilometers away. The Estate is uniquely positioned for the production of wines with exceptional complexity and character. In the summertime, ocean breezes and evening mists roll in from the coast to cool the vineyards. The grapes ripen slowly, thus achieving full, concentrated varietal flavours. The soil consists of predominantly deep, well drained Hutton and Clovelly soil types, affording the vines excellent drought resistance and an ideal substrata for producing concentrated, complex wines.

  • Meerlust Rubicon Red Cabernet Sauvingnon 2004


    Meerlust is an iconic Cabernet blend producer in South Africa. This wine ages well, and better yet, it is often several years old by the time it reaches the US market. The aging has been done for you in the winery's cellars! The price is reasonable, especially for aged wine, and the wine is nice mid-way point between Old and New Worlds. Read More
