Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show 2013 – Bronze
The Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 has an intense, vivid purple colour with slight gradation at the rim. On the nose the wine shows intense cassis, plum and classic cedar wood-cigar box notes with lifted dark fruit aromas. On the palate the wine is full bodied and impressively structured. Intense blackcurrant and plum fruit bolstered by refined tannins and fresh natural acidity. The palate is rich and dense with a wonderful lacy tannic structure.
Very impressive in youth but the intensity, harmony and balance all promise maturation over the next 15 years.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Roast meat and game. Ideally served at 18ºC – 20ºC.
In The Vineyard
Decomposed granite topsoil with clay subsoil. The Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 was vinified from selected fruit from low-yielding mature vineyards. The vines are densely planted on gravelly, low vigour Vilafontes and Dundee soil which has approximately 15 % clay to ensure water availability to the vines roots right through the growing season.
The hand picked fruit was vinified in the traditional manner with partial un-inoculated fermentation and regular remontage. Only the free-run wine was used and aged for 20 months in tight grained French Nevers oak barrels. 75% of the barrels were brand new with 25% second fill casks.

All the 600+ bottles of wine you generously donated to StreetLife have now been “sold” and all moneies received via donations. As a result you have helped us raise €915.00 for our Animal Sterilisation Programme – we are overwhelmed by the response.

On behalf of AFPOP EA thank you for a great wine tasting. Some interesting wines and ports… some of the ports surprised me as I’m not necessarily a port drinker. Rita was excellent… very easy to listen to and the wines were very easy to drink! Your team were fabulous… nibbles great… overall a successful wine tasting event. Once again, thank you and I’m sure we will see you again soon.
