Morgenster Lourens River Valley Bordeaux blend is once again made in consultation with Pierre Lurton of Château Cheval Blanc. 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 carefully selected to suit the approachable style Morgenster was aiming for.
