Great depth and concentration of colour. Deep dark hue and purple black centre.
A gorgeous perfume of sweet roasted herbs, red and black cherries, blackberries and spice.
This wine reveals terrific intensity with youthful hints as well of some savory spice and meaty aromas. Full-bodied and opulent with more structure than some previous vintages. This should be at its finest in 5-8 years and last for two decades or more.
Morgenster Estate Reserve once again showcases the Estate’s philosophy behind its flagship wine, which is to reflect Morgenster ’sexceptional terroir in the best possible blend created within harvest conditions.
Grapes from carefully selected clonal material came from vineyard sites with a diversity of soils, from deep decomposed granite to stonier decomposed Table Mountain Sandstone. Vines, varying in age from 10 to 22 years, yielded pristine fruit.
As usual blending was done in consultation with Pierre Lurton of Château Cheval Blanc and cellar master Henry Kotzéis more than happy with the result; “This is Morgenster Reserve, so expect nothing less than amazing. These wines are crafted from the Schapenbergmountainsides to create memories from now until 20 years in the future”, he says.
