1 x Morgenster Wine Estate Lourens River Valley 2012

Bordeaux Blend:

Colour: Opaque heart, with vibrant brick red edges.
Nose: Initial aromas are of black and red cherries, strawberry shortcake and cassis. There are also intriguing earthy and spicy nuances of liquorice, vanilla and sweet cinnamon. Aeration will release plum, mulberry and raspberry notes.
Palate: Silky smooth and sweet, with luscious ripe fruit woven into elegantly constructed tannins. This wine will reward even further if decanted.

1 x Morgenster Wine Estate Lourens River Valley 2011

Bordeaux Blend:

Colour: Opaque centre with lighter brick red edges, young and vibrant red.
Nose: Sweet whiffs of blackberry are at the fore, with ripe bramble and fresh plum. Also very prominent and intriguing are Cabernet Franc’s cinnamon and nutmeg influences. There are some classical herbaceous notes found in lavender and thyme, ending with yummy coffee and toffee.
Palate: Elegant entry, very plush and immediately filling and rewarding. All the enticing sweetness evident on the nose returns to the fore. Acidity, savoury and sweetness blend harmoniously and the rounded silky tannins are already soft and velvety.

1 x Morgenster Wine Estate Lourens River Valley 2010

Bordeaux Blend:

Colour: Opaque centre with lighter brick red edges, young and vibrant red.
Nose: Very fresh and vibrant flavor profile. Blackcurrant and cherry sweetness, with spicy clove, chive, anis and butter developments. Well integrated vanilla, cacao and caramel smoothes over into the palate.
Palate: Velvet entry, very plush and immediately filling. Sweeter dark berry fruits are very evident and contribute well to balance. Spicy sweet Cabernet Franc does well to pull the blend back into the classical category. Rounded silky tannins are already soft and velvety. Beautiful balance and great finesse round off a stunner of a vintage.Keeping with the philosophy behind Lourens River Valley Kotzé focused on letting the fruit do the talking, making the wine a true reflection of the terroir and what can be achieved with it in any given vintage. It was a smaller than usual crop but excellent quality prevailed. For Morgenster, the 2010 vintage can be tipped as a winner.

1 x Morgenster Wine Estate Lourens River Valley 2009

Bordeaux Blend:

Colour: Opaque centre with lighter brick red edges, young and vibrant red.
Nose: Starts out more herbaceous with lavender and thyme in the lead. Cabernet franc much more predominant with some whiffs of coffee. Then comes the cassis, raspberry and perfumey rose petals.
Palate: Elegant and accessible entry, fullness is a given. A seamlessly put together palate. Beautiful balance of fruit, wood and acidity.

1 x Morgenster Wine Estate Lourens River Valley 2003

Bordeaux Blend:

Colour: Deep ruby-red.
Nose: Extremely elegant aromas of ripe red fruits, plum, cinnamon, liquorice, blond tobacco and a strong, mineral streak.
Palate: Silky sweet in the mouth, with beautiful ripe fruit that’s still young and wound tight. The finish is ‘text book’ fine-grain tannins and superb subtle persistence. Give this wine some special treatment by decanting it about an hour prior to serving and it will reward your efforts by emphasising these characteristics.

1 x Morgenster Wine Estate Lourens River Valley 2002

Bordeaux Blend:

Colour: A true reflection of the vintage, wines of distinction were produced; one of very few that reflects vibrant colour; a deep centre with an attractive stable Burgundian red tint.
Nose: Earthy, spicy aromas support and amplify nuances of liquorice, cinnamon, chocolate, mocha and vanilla. The bouquet reminds one of the scent of our indigenous plant fynbos; its herbaceous character. Aeration will release flavourful esters of dark mulberry, plum and strong red grape aromas.
Palate: The stimulation on the palate is mild and expressive to show great personality. Finely knitted tannins interlacing the spice and fruit flavour to offer a fresh entry with good structure and length to a pleasant finish. The character lingers and leaves a pleasant dryness.
