An equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, it's a high quality second wine from an estate farmed by the same family since the 1920s, using organic methods. Delicious with duck, goose, turkey or cassoulet.

An abundance of aromas in the glass and on the palate: dried fruits, nutmeg, hints of honey and fig; beautifully round with a mellow, long, luscious nutty finish. Christmas cake in a glass.

Saturday 10th December 2016

Rich in the mouth, mango, tropical fruit, honeyed richness yet nevertheless with a pleasing freshness that make it so versatile. A most agreeable pudding wine; a substitute for dessert; an accompaniment with foie gras - Filhot is dry enough to work even an aperitif. Truly a wonderful wine.

50 wines to try before you die! - Our Thirty Nineth Wine - Chardonnay, Meerlust, Stellenbosch 2015

Friday 25th November 2016

Our regular readers will remember that our second wine was Meerlust's Rubicon which used Bordeaux varietals. The elegance of this chardonnay bridges Stellenbosch and Burgundy too but at a fraction of the price of the old world wine.
