Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Region: Stellenbosch, South Africa
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Very deep, youthful colour, and vibrant red hue. The nose shows dark and red fruit mixed with a slight dried herb note. Still young and intense, the palate is structured and packed with fresh red cherries and wonderfully elegant tannins. This is a vintage that is more approachable in youth because of the ripeness and richness levels attained in 2018 but will provide great complexity with further maturation.
This Cabernet Sauvignon is a true expression of the variety as grown on the Meerlust estate and draws fruit from two of our four distinct terroirs. Each terroir provides a unique element to the final blend.berries.
Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Today, the dedication to quality winemaking continues under the guidance of 8th generation, Hannes Myburgh. Cellar Master, Chris Williams, who has worked on the estate since 1995 has been in charge of winemaking since 2004. The name Meerlust means “pleasure of the sea”, as the property is situated 5km from False Bay (and 15km south of Stellenbosch), with the cooling influence of the coast, allowing the grapes ripen slowly.
