It is notable for its Bordeaux-styled Rubicon wine, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, but also makes wines from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The estate is named for its ocean view – Meerlust meaning 'pleasure of the ocean'. The vineyards benefit from cooling ocean breezes and evening mists during the summer, which helps lengthen the growing season and allows grapes to ripen more slowly (a major factor in resulting flavor intensity). The deep soils are rich in clay and granite, which is excellent for the Bordeaux varieties: Merlot on the rich clay and Cabernet on the well-drained granite. Pinot Noir is planted in the most elevated part of the vineyard, where it is cooler. Meerlust has been owned by the Myburgh family since 1756 and today is run by the eighth generation, Hannes Myburgh. The estate's modern era began in the 1960s when Nico Myburgh visited Bordeaux and brought back his learnings on grape varieties and blending in particular, believing Bordeaux and Stellenbosch to have similar terroir. The flagship wine, Rubicon, first made in 1984, is Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant with some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and was one of South Africa's first blended wines. It is only made when the vintage is deemed good enough. Rubicon has been \"declassified\" to the Meerlust Red label in only five vintages, however. These are: 1985, 1990, 2002, 2011 and, most recently, the 2019.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-13T18:44:59-04:00","created_at":"2023-02-15T12:31:37-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_South Africa","NK1502","Other_Wine","Producer_Meerlust","Region_Stellenbosch","Source_Hedonism0123","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Pinot Noir"],"price":24999,"price_min":24999,"price_max":24999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42781977247882,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2020 | Meerlust | Pinot Noir","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":24999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/23_92373d52-7d78-4c42-b7f5-bf0f9ea1f453.jpg?v=1676482331"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/23_92373d52-7d78-4c42-b7f5-bf0f9ea1f453.jpg?v=1676482331","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2020 | Meerlust | Pinot Noir at CaskCartel.com","id":24237055541386,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"width":600,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/23_92373d52-7d78-4c42-b7f5-bf0f9ea1f453.jpg?v=1676482331"},"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/23_92373d52-7d78-4c42-b7f5-bf0f9ea1f453.jpg?v=1676482331","width":600}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2020 | Meerlust | Pinot Noir\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Meerlust\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e:\u003c\/strong\u003e 2020\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 750ml\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 12.5%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Pinot Noir\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e South Africa, Stellenbosch\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003e\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eProducer Information\u003c\/h4\u003e\nMeerlust is a wine producer in South Africa's famous Stellenbosch region.
