Deep opaque ruby colour with a garnet rim.

Exhuberent floral and musky nose with hints of violets, cherries and baking spice.

The palate is youthfull with bright acidity, juicy red fruit flavours and silky, supple tannins giving the wine a good length.

Selected from 3 clones of Pinot Noir with an average age of 13 years old, situated on loamy gravel topsoil with clay sub-soil. 40% vendage vert (green harvesting cluster removal) at 60% veraison to ensure concentration and even ripening.

Grapes hand picked and selected in the coolness of morning before crushing. Fermentaion in small stainless steel cuves with regular pigeage for gentle extraction. Partial un-innoculated fermentation before pressing directly in French oak tight grained Hogsheads for malo-lactic fermentation. After racking, the wine was matured in 70% new Alliers Hogshead for 11 months before bottling.

A perfect match with white and red meats, Parma ham, grilled linefish, Tuna, wild mushrooms and traditional cheeses.

Producer Information

Long recognized for producing world-class wines, Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Today, the traditional dedication to the art of winemaking continues under the guidance of Hannes Myburgh, eighth generation custodian of this seventeenth-century national monument.
Meerlust, with its historic manor house, classic wine cellar, family cemetery, dovecote and bird sanctuary is situated fifteen kilometers south of Stellenbosch, with the blue crescent of False Bay a mere five kilometers away. The Estate is uniquely positioned for the production of wines with exceptional complexity and character. In the summertime, ocean breezes and evening mists roll in from the coast to cool the vineyards.
The grapes ripen slowly, thus achieving full, concentrated varietal flavours. The soil consists of predominantly deep, well drained Hutton and Clovelly soil types, affording the vines excellent drought resistance and an ideal substrata for producing concentrated, complex wines. One hundred and ten hectares are planted with varieties such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
