A classic rendition of a white Bordeaux-style blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Complex, elegant and powerful with some citronella zing and great acidity. A delightfully fragrant, ripe and fresh wine.

|Food Suggestions||A perfect match with seafood, including oysters or sushi, grilled salmon, seared tuna and mussels cooked in white wine. Also pair it with goat’s cheese, pasta and pesto, and mixed salads|
|In The Vineyard||This was one of the earliest starts to any season in more than 40 years. Budding, flowering and grape set were earlier, put into place and timed perfectly by the warmer November and December months. Quite dry conditions ushered in a good harvest and the quality of the wines is great|
|Ageing Potentail||This wine will still be offering much pleasure at age 10.|
|Blend Information||Sauvignon blanc 55% Semillon 45%|
Morgenster White Reserve 2016 is the Estate’s sixth vintage of its
classic Bordeaux white made to complement what people expect
from a Morgenster red Bordeaux: elegance now, with concentration
and more complexity to follow and longevity as a result.
Presented for the first time under a slightly changed label, Morgenster
White Reserve 2015 was crafted by cellar master Henry Kotzé in
consultation with Morgenster’s consultant, Pierre Lurton at Château
Cheval Blanc. Grapes were sourced from the Schapenberg area not
further than one kilometre from the cellar, with Sauvignon Blanc
coming from western facing vines on decomposed granite and
Semillon from older north-north-west facing vines on alluvial riverbed
This is a great partner to the Morgenster red Bordeaux blends in
terms of ageability, with Kotzé punting it for a bright future
