Harvesting

Harvest time is from mid-February to sometimes as late as mid-April. Prior to the harvest much time is spent in the vineyards tasting the grapes to determine optimal ripeness. The north facing aspects with low vigour soils, combined with the cooling sea breeze off False Bay, create an extended ripening period allowing the grapes to accumulate a higher concentration of colour, intensity, fruit flavour, tannin density and structure, which are specific to Morgenster wines.

The different vineyard blocks are harvested separately, with a maximum of 15 tons of grapes being picked daily. Merlot is the first to ripen, followed by Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and finally Petit Verdot. All the grapes are analysed to confirm the correct balance with reference to phenolic ripeness, fruit and acid levels.
