Morgenster Lourens River Valley Bordeaux blend is once again made in consultation with Pierre Lurton of Château Cheval Blanc. Pristine fruit came from 10 to 22-year-old vines in vineyards with a diversity of soils, from deep decomposed granite to the stonier decomposed Table Mountain Sandstone. Clonal material was carefully selected to suit the approachable style Morgenster was aiming for. A red Bordeaux-style blend made in a fruit-driven, easily accessible style. This wine is a true reflection of the terroir and what can be achieved with it in any given vintage. Wonderful evolution and longevity has made this wine a household brand. Aged in French oak for over 12 months this complex wine offers flavors of cassis, black cherry, and earthy spice. Medium to full-bodied with seamless tannins and wonderful acidity to complement a variety of meals.
