Description

From one of the most revered estates in Stellenbosch, Hannes Myburgh is the eighth generation custodian of this seventeenth-century national monument. The first owner of the property, a German immigrant named Henning Huising, recognized the beauty and potential of the farm and settled here in 1693. He named his new-found home “Meerlust”, meaning “pleasure of the sea”.

The wine has an intense, dark purple colour with a violet rim; bright and vivacious in the glass, youthful. The nose is expressive with powerful cassis, plum, exotic spice and hints of floral aromas. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied with intense flavours of crushed black fruit, cassis, vanilla and dark chocolate. The tannins are soft and silky, the acidity fresh, the flavour profile focused and linear. The wine has a persistent and long-lasting aftertaste.

Food matches: Pair this wine with venison, game, beef or lamb.
