The philosophy behind the Morgenster Lourens River Valley Bordeaux blend is to create a wine in an inviting and easily accessible style where the fruit does the talking, making the wine a true reflection of the terroir and what can be achieved with it in any given vintage. Wonderful evolution and longevity are also a part of this process.
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 selected to suit the style of cellar master Henry Kotzéwas aiming for.
This is a rewarding wine, comments Henry, adding that decanting will further release its complexity.
