2014 was another great vintage, and in line with the Estate’s philosophy behind its flagship Bordeaux blend, Morgenster Estate Reserve 2014 reflects its exceptional terroir in the best possible blend from a great harvest. As usual, blending was done in consultation with Pierre Lurton of Château Chevel 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.
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 nine to 21 years, yielded pristine fruit.
