The 2009 vintage on Morgenster was a stunner following good harvest conditions and vineyards which yielded pristine fruit. In keeping with the philosophy behind the Lourens River Valley label, the focus was on letting the fruit do the talking and allowing the wine to be a TRUE reflection of the terroir and what can be achieved with it in any given vintage. Lourens River Valley 2009 is softer, more accessible and feminine than flagship Morgenster 2009, which by comparison is lean and muscular. As always, the quality of both these Bordeaux reds is exceptional. For the first time they are being accompanied by the launch of Morgenster’s long awaited white, a 2011 Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend in the classic Bordeaux style.
62% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
Still in its very youthful stage and will develop beautifully over the next 10 – 15 years.
