Meerlust Estate 2018 Chardonnay White Wine South Africa 75cl
Meerlust Estate 2018 Chardonnay 75cl White Wine is from Meerlust, one of the Cape's most historic wine estates, originally planted in 1693. In 1756, it was purchased by the first Myburgh and has been the pride of the family ever since. Today, after seven generations, Hannes Myburgh, the present owner, continue the great family tradition of winemaking.
This is a bright, polished Chardonnay with a complex nose of fruit and floral notes with a medium-bodied palate of balanced, crisp acidity. 2018 was not an easy vintage in Stellenbosch but the grapes were picked at six separate stages at their optimum ripeness, ensuring complexity and balance.Read more...

- Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Red Wine South Africa 75clGrape: Chardonnay“Drought was the predominant factor in South Africa in 2018. Yields were 15% lower than in 2017, but the hot conditions have also concentrated flavours. Brave faces claim that quality is high, thanks to slightly cooler conditions at harvest and low disease pressure, but it certainly wasn’t an easy vintage.” - Jancis RobinsonThis wine has an appealing nose of pear and zingy citrus notes leading to creamy, rich flavours of oatmeal and marzipan. The palate has focussed citrus notes with great acidity, therefore remaining fresh and sleek. The finish lingers elegantly.Delicious with grilled fish or white meat dishes with pork or chicken.
