Hannes Myburgh is the 8th generation of Myburghs to own Meerlust since they bought the estate in 1756. Aside from vineyards, there is a fine old manor house and estate 15 miles south of Stellenbosch.

The first owner of the property, a German immigrant named Henning Huising, settled there in 1693 and named his new-found home 'Meerlust', meaning 'pleasure of the sea'. They are most well-known for the iconic Bordeaux blend – Rubicon – first introduced in 1980. Named after the Rubicon River, the border of ancient Rome, because as Julius Caesar's decision to cross the border profoundly changed the course of Roman politics, so the Myburghs had crossed a new frontier hoping to change the way South Africans thought about red wine.

This youthful South African full-bodied wine has an intense, dark purple colour with a violet rim. It is bright and vivacious in the glass. The bouquet is expressive with powerful cassis, plum, exotic spice and hints of floral aromas.

13.5% ABV
