Family owned – energetic winemaker


Meerlust Estate is situated 40 kilometres from Cape Town, on the banks of the Eerste River in the district of Stellenbosch. Johannes Albertus Myburgh bought Meerlust in January 1757. His ownership marked the foundation of the Myburgh Dynasty. Hannes Myburgh, 8th generation owner of Meerlust, is now running the estate with the help of Chris Williams.

Chris was appointed Cellar Master at Meerlust in 2004. He studied Oenology at Elsenberg and gained international experience in France while working for Michel Rolland. Chris is energised by the challenge of developing the vines at Meerlust to their next stage of maturity, while isolating and identifying specific vineyards of excellence and elevating the varietal expression of his grapes.

Chardonnay 2018

Complex, appealing nose with pear, citrus and floral notes developing into lemon cream, oatmeal and marzipan richness. On the palate the wine is medium bodied and linear but retains generous focused citrus fruit flavours with sleek, balanced and crisp acidity. Vivacious and fresh on the finish with clean citrus fruit and stony minerality.
