Meerlust Estate, Stellenbosch

Meerlust Estate, Stellenbosch

Making fine wines on the Meerlust Estate has been part of the Myburgh family tradition for eight generations, dating back to 1756. Today, the family tradition of dedication to the art of winemaking continues under the guidance of owner Hannes Myburgh, who studied winemaking at Geisenheim, Germany and Château Lafite and Chris Williams, who took over from Giorgio dalla Cia, and has brought a new energy and style to the wines.

Chris Williams was appointed cellar master in 2004 and brought a new energy and style to the wines, also enhancing the quality of the flagship wine, Rubicon – one of the first Bordeaux-style blends to be developed by a South African producer.

The estate is situated 15 kilometres south of Stellenbosch, with the blue crescent of False Bay just five kilometres away. Two hundred hectares are planted, mainly with red varieties such as Cabernet SauvignonMerlotCabernet Franc and Pinot Noir.

Meerlust is uniquely situated 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 aromas and flavours. The soil here is very much like that in Bordeaux, consisting of decomposed granite mixed with clay, and is ideal for growing grapes for fine wine.
