Morgenster really takes its wines seriously and as media we were invited to witness a few years worth of their Italian collection, some Reserve wines and the launch of the current vintage of the Italian Collection - viz the 2013. The wines were fresh and delicious with the foods presented after the tasting. The Sangiovese Rose which I was not that keen on in the tasting was just superb when paired with smoked salmon. There was much discussion about whether it was a good idea to focus so heavily on the Merlot in their Reserve blend. However, Francois Rautenbach from Singita assured me that their customers absolutely love this wine and is sold out really quickly. So perhaps there is method in their Merlot-fronted Reserve!
