Colour: Bright lemon with a tinge of green.
Nose: Tropical aromas abound in this Sauvignon blanc, with litchi, melon and mango notes floating above hints of paprika and thyme.
Palate: A delight in the mouth, this elegantly crafted wine offers gracious balance and poise. The soft lingering acidity gives way to a beautiful sweet concentration of fruit on the palate. Some herbaceous notes also teases interest.
Made to suit a wide range of tastes and uses, enjoy this as an extraordinary everyday drink or match it to a pleasurable summer event of grandeur. Salads, fish or poultry dishes pair well. Delightful on its own too!
In The Vineyard
Region: Helderberg ward
2016 was a cracker of a vintage for both whites and reds. As the driest in recorded history, early harvested whites developed beautiful aromatics while a sudden temperature drop in February and March presented the reds with a lengthened ripening period.
Morgenster’s NU (pronounced “new”) range of fruity styled and accessible wines made from young vines has been a hit, appealing as it does to both newer wine drinkers and those interested in tasting single varietal components of the Estate’s more famous blends.
None more so than Morgenster NU Series 1 Sauvignon Blanc. 2016 is the fourth release of this cultivar, with previous vintages selling out soon after launch.
In addition to Sauvignon Blanc, Morgenster NU range includes a Merlot, a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Cabernet Franc and a Sangiovese.
