Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon 1975

From a bygone era.

The 1975 Cabernet Sauvignon was the first wine to carry the Meerlust label and to celebrate the 40th anniversary, current winemaker Chris Williams recently hosted a tasting which culminated in this very bottling.

A haunting nose of red fruit, violets, earth and black olive. The palate light but not lacking in detail – alcohol by volume a mere 11%, the acidity fresh acidity and tannins fine, the finish long and savoury. “Vivacious” was the word William used to describe it and he wasn’t wrong.

#WinemagRating: 93/100.
