From one of the most revered estates in Stellenbosch, Hannes Myburgh is the eighth generation custodian of this seventeenth-century national monument. The first owner of the property, a German immigrant named Henning Huising, recognized the beauty and potential of the farm and settled here in 1693. He named his new-found home Meerlust, meaning pleasure of the sea. This dark purple coloured vivacious wine with cassis, exotic spice and floral aromas will not fail to impress.
Food matches: Pair this wine with venison, game, beef or lamb.
