Meerlust Estate, South Africa



THE MEERLUST ESTATE
The Meerlust Estate has been long recognised for producing world-class wines.  The 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, the eighth generation custodian of this seventeenth-century national monument.

Meerlust is situated fifteen kilometers south of Stellenbosch, with the blue crescent of False Bay a mere 5 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.

In the summertime, ocean breezes and evening mists roll in from the coasts to cool the vineyards.  The grapes ripen slowly, thus achieving full, concentrated, varietal flavours.  The soils consist of predominantly deep, well-drained soil types, affording the vines excellent drought resistance and an ideal substrata for producing concentrated, complex wines
