The Legacy of Meerlust Wines

A Journey Through Time

Meerlust’s story is one of passion, dedication, and a deep connection to the land. For over 260 years, the Myburgh family has cultivated the soils of this historic estate, producing wines that capture the essence of its terroir. The estate’s location, a stone’s throw away from False Bay, blesses the vineyards with cool ocean breezes, ensuring the grapes ripen slowly and develop full, concentrated flavours.

Craftsmanship in Every Bottle

Every bottle of Meerlust wine is a testament to the estate’s commitment to excellence. From the deep, well-drained Hutton and Clovelly soils to the meticulous care in the vineyard and cellar, every step is taken to ensure the wines express the unique character of the estate.

One such exemplary wine is the Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon. A true reflection of Meerlust’s dedication, this wine boasts a rich palate, layered with dark fruits, hints of chocolate, and the signature minerality that Meerlust wines are renowned for.

A Modern Fusion with Timeless Tradition

While Meerlust honours its rich history, it is not bound by it. The estate seamlessly blends traditional winemaking techniques with modern innovations, ensuring that Meerlust wines remain at the forefront of South African winemaking.
