Characteristics

Accolades

4 ½ Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide –
Usual classic notes of dark berry fruit & cigarbox on 16 (91 ps), with plenty of fruit depth & a hint of herbal quality – perhaps a little more relaxed than some vintages. A slightly sombre, serious wine, balanced & well structured. 55% new oak needs a few years to absorb.

Tasting Notes

The Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 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 2016. Already approachable in youth but the intensity, harmony and balance all promise maturation over the next 15 years.

Ageing Potential

Although approachable now the Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 will be best from 4 – 15 years from vintage.
