Meerlust Merlot 750ml
Long recognized for producing world-class wines, Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756.
Meerlust, with its historic manor house and classic wine cellar, is situated fifteen kilometers south of Stellenbosch, with the blue crescent of False Bay a mere five kilometers away. Wines are only made from grapes grown on the Estate which is uniquely positioned for the production of wines with exceptional complexity and character.
The rich nose of this Merlot offers ripe mulberry, plum and spice with underlying aromas of dark chocolate and red cherry. The full bodied palate offers generous, ripe, pure Merlot fruit with refreshing acidity, structured yet silky tannins and pronounced length and minerality. There is a core of juiciness, opulence and richness typical of this variety. The wine matures for up to 15 years and is delicious with red meats, roast lamb, ostrich and strong cheeses.
