About Meerlust Estate
The Myburgh family began growing wines on the Meerlust Estate in 1756. Eight generations on, Meerlust Estate combine traditional and modern techniques to achieve the full potential of their impeccable vineyards, ensuring that each bottle is of exceptional taste and quality.
The intense, almost purple-coloured Meerlust Rubicon is one of the great Bordeaux-style reds of the New World. The nose is classically Rubicon with violets, ripe plum, cedarwood and intense spicyness. The palate is rich, structured and packed with earthy dark fruit and rounded, linear tannins.
Meerlust Estate’s Stellenbosch Red is a judicious blend of two Cabernets (Sauvignon and Franc) and Merlot. Bright with an intense violet colour, this medium-bodied red is expressive on the nose and vivacious on the palate, using the same fruit notes used in their top wine, the Rubicon.
Meerlust Chardonnay is very youthful and vivid, with a brilliant bright platinum colour and pronounced green hue. This excellent wine offers a complex nose with citrus fruit, green apple and cream flavours, which develops into a delicious creamy bouquet of marzipan, halva and oatmeal.
