'Classic 2017 already flaunting cab’s sweet blackberry fruit, gentle opulence, also freshness; all safely secured by usual bracing structure, fine & ripe, but leaving no doubt time is required to harmonise. Oak, 70% new French, seamlessly absorbed.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'The Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 has an intense, vivid purple colour with slight gradation at the rim. On the nose the wine shows pronounced plum and classic cedar wood-cigar box notes with lifted dark fruit aromas. There is the characteristic hallmark aromas of fennel and liquorice associated with Meerlust Cabernet. On the palate the wine is full bodied but with richness of fruit and supple tannic structure typical of 2017. Although approachable now the Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 will be best from 4 - 15 years from vintage.' – Chris Williams, Winemaker

Producer information Meerlust Estate, owned by the Myburgh family, has been in the family for eight generations. Located 5km from False Bay, the property was given the name 'Meerlust' from the original owner, which means 'pleasure of the sea'. The Meerlust name is synonymous with tradition, elegance and longevity. In fact, it was their Cabernet Sauvignon, produced since 1975, that was the first to carry the Meerlust label.
