The Meerlust Natural Selection Lot




The Lot Info
The Lot Summary
Long recognized for producing world-class wines, Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Today, the traditional dedication to the art of winemaking continues under the guidance of Hannes Myburgh. Wines are only made from grapes grown on the estate, which is uniquely positioned for the production of wines with exceptional complexity and character.

Natural Selection has its roots in the African Safari business. Founders Dave, Colin, Jen and James are old friends who began their careers as guides in the bush many moons ago. They are devoted to the simple premise that safari tourism, when done correctly, is an incredibly powerful tool for conserving and protecting Africa’s last great wild places. Their deep commitment is matched only by their devotion to providing guests with the most unique and extraordinary experiences out there.

The winning bidder will receive an incredible Rubicon collection of twenty vintages from 1997 – 2016 which will include the Meerlust Red 2002 and 2011. As no Rubicon was produced in 2002 and 2011 the wine was de-classified and sold as Red. In addition the bidder will receive a six bottle case of Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon 1975. The first wine ever to be released under the Meerlust label.

A two night stay for four people at the new Lekkerwater Beach Lodge situated in the De Hoop nature reserve. Voted by Time Magazine as one of the Top 100 places to visit on the planet. Undoubtedly one of the most glorious coastal reserves in Africa, the area’s extraordinary beauty and blissful seclusion led ex-President FW de Klerk to choose the location for his ‘Camp David.’ The reserve is also famous for some of the best whale watching on the planet when, from July to November, Southern Right whales and their offspring flock here in their hundreds from Antarctica. It’s not simply whales either and you’ll also spot sizeable pods of dolphin and all sorts of marine life in this – the ultimate, land-based marine safari. This prize is not redeemable for cash and is non-transferable. Flights or transfers are not included and the prize is valid until 31st November 2020.

The lot includes a weekend stay for two couples in the “Quarters” at Meerlust. In addition, eight guests will be invited to a private luncheon at the Meerlust homestead hosted by Hannes Myburgh. Not open to the public, this house has been the family home for the Myburgh family for 264 years.
