Meerlust Estate Red South Africa Stellenbosch 2011 Red 75Cl; The wine has an intense opaque deep ruby colour very slight gradation to the rim. Bright and vivacious in the glass very youthful. The nose is expressive with lifted dark fruit cassis plum chocolate and black cherry. There is a pronounced minerality on the nose with graphite cedar smoke and cigar box bouquet. On the palate the Red 2005 is open textured with a rich juiciness and savoury quality already. The perfectly formed ripe round tannins are densely packed and tightly woven but remain lithe and almost powdery giving the wine a generous opulence even at this early phase of its development. Venison game pot roast and noble cheese.

4 /5

A wonderful new world blend of two traditional grape varieties. The Red Sea Lust convinced with numerous dark fruit and oak flavors. Juicy, well matured and with a long finish, it bears witness of the winegrower Art Stellenbosch.
