Notes

Family-owned and family-run, Morgenster Estate has a long history dating back 300 years. Situated near the foothills of the Helderberg Mountain in Somerset West, they produce award-winning Bordeaux-style wines, Italian cultivars and extra virgin olive oil.

They aim to inspire people to dream big, through sharing their founder’s story, the legend of Giulio Bertrand and his persistence, tenacity and unflinching commitment to quality. They continue his legacy as Morgenster’s fine wines and olive oils go out into the world to the rhythm of: place, people, passion…

Tasting notes:
'10 from half cab franc with merlot, cab & petit verdot. Elegant & charming; shows restrained dark berry, spice fragrance, complexity. Sweet flesh contained by natural freshness, fine polished tannins. Blanced to age.' – Platter's Wine Guide 2014, 4.5*

'Shows some maturity, with roasted cedar and tobacco notes taking over from the core of dark currant and cherry fruit. A cedary edge hangs through the finish. Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.' – Wine Spectator, 87/100
