Martin Meinert

Website :

After graduating in Viticulture and Oenology from the University of Stellenbosch as one of the top students in 1984, Martin became well known as the leading light behind the now world famous wine of Vergelegen. Since 1997 he has concentrated all his energies and winemaking skills on his family’s Devon Crest Vineyard in Stellenbosch’s Devon Valley, and winemaking for his friend Ken Forrester. The approach is very terroir-based, with four wines being made. Devon Crest is a rich and elegant blend of Cabernet and Merlot from four different vineyard sites; Synchronicity, the flagship wine, is a low yielding vineyard selection from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinotage, which earns the greatest accolade. Single varietal Merlot and Pinotage complete the set. Charming, down to earth and with fantastic winemaking skills, Martin’s boutique offering is a jewel in our award winning South African portfolio.

Other wines by this producer

  1. 2013 La Barry White, Sauvignon Blanc, Martin Meinert

    Delicate floral fruit with underlying grassier tones. As it ages, mineral and flinty flavours come to the fore, so don’t drink all of it too young!

  2. 2009 Synchronicity, Martin Meinert

    A big rich wine from South Africa that emanates wild berry and sweet plum aromas. Silky, velvety texture and elegance in the mouth that counterpoints its power.

  3. 2011 La Barry Red, Martin Meinert

    A wine for every day that offers just that little bit more. It has a lovely mid-palate fullness which belies its status, yet the finish is gentle and fresh.

  4. 2012 Printers Ink Pinotage, Martin Meinert

    Full bodied and elegant yet it has richness on the mid-palate. The emphasis is put on fruit
    flavours through gentle extraction methods.

  5. 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Meinert

    Dense deep fresh red colour. The nose shows red berries, typical Cabernet herbs, spicy toasty oak and tobacco. Mouth filling and weighty but not clumsy on the palate, finishes crisp and lingering.

  6. 2011 Merlot, Martin Meinert

    2011 Merlot, Martin Meinert


    Fresh, rich red colour. The nose is an appetising mix of redcurrant, mint, spice and mineral aromas, the palate is soft and finishes smooth and crisp.
