“The style of Meerlust's successful Chardonnay has shifted dramatically in recent vintages towards more freshness and elegance. Now sourced from vineyards on shale and granite soile, it's a tangy, lightly toasted white with lemon and lime flavours and a fresh, focused finish.”

“Broad and open-knit, this harmonious red integrates fine tannins with a fragrant overtone of cured tobacco, featuring baked currant and fig, fresh and loamy earth, black licorice twist and milled pepper. Fresh and focused on the finish, where the tobacco note lingers on. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2028.”

“A lively, light- to medium-bodied white, with grilled nut and spice notes winding through and backed by bright acidity, which accents the yellow pear and peach, elderflower and clementine flavors. Clean-cut and lightly chalky on the finish. Drink now.”

“The 2020 Chardonnay has a lovely bouquet, gentle and harmonious, with touches of citrus peel, mirabelle and light stony aromas. The well-balanced palate delivers fine acidity, lime flavors and hints of stem ginger that combine neatly with the citrus fruit on the taut finish. Not amazingly complex, but a very competent Chardonnay.”

“The 2017 Rubicon, Meerlust's flagship Bordeaux blend (68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot) offers attractive blackberry, raspberry coulis and floral scents on the nose, plus just a touch of glycerol. The palate is harmonious and medium-bodied with supple tannins, fine acidity and an almost understated but long finish.”
