Tasting Notes:

Dense, rich plum, ruby red. Terrific intensity! Gorgeous enticing perfume of plum, red and black berry richness, almonds and coffee with toffee, and classical pencil shavings, cigar box and cassis. Mouth filling elegance with a cashmere feel of finely interwoven tannins in abundance. At first it presents a complicated engulfing sweeter, dark berry fruit. A fine balance of acidity over minerality contributes to harnessing the youthfulness.

Morgenster Estate Reserve 2014 once again showcases the Estate’s philosophy behind its flagship wine, which is to reflect Morgenster’s exceptional 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 Kotzé is more than happy with the result; “This is Morgenster Reserve, so expect nothing less than amazing. These wines are crafted from the Schapenberg mountainsides to create memories from now until 20 years in the future”, he says.

Record rains in August and November 2013 were followed by normal summer temperatures and very cold evenings. A nice pre-harvest rain in January lifted the freshness of the vines with further sprinklings throughout harvest.

18 months in French oak. New Oak 60%, 2nd fill 20% 3rd fill 20%.
