Meerlust Pinot Noir 2015
Juvenile delinquent.

While the 2016 edition of Platter’s has yet to review the 2014 vintage of Meerlust Pinot Noir let alone the 2015, last year’s wine is indeed commercially available – R241.45 a bottle from Liquor City Claremont – which does seem extraordinarily early.

Needless to say, the wine currently appears extremely youthful. Red and black cherry and toasty oak are the predominant characteristics but also a little musk and even blood. The acidity appears quite tart and it feels a bit angular all in all. No doubt a good year or two before it starts to show anything like its true potential.

#WinemagRating: 87/100.

  1. Hi Christian
    Sadly, we didn’t bottle a 2014 Pinot Noir. The wine was made but deemed not good enough to be released under the Meerlust label, which is why we have released the 2015 already. Fortunately, young Pinot is approachable even at this early stage, although I do agree with you that the wine could certainly benefit from a bit more time in bottle.
