Food Suggestions
A perfect match with seafood, including oysters or sushi, grilled salmon, seared tuna and mussels cooked in white wine. Also pair it with goat’s cheese, pasta and pesto, and mixed salads.
In The Vineyard
This was one of the earliest starts to any season in more than 40 years. Budding, flowering and grape set were earlier, put into place and timed perfectly by the warmer November and December months. Quite dry conditions ushered in a good harvest and the quality of the wines is great.
Additional Information
Morgenster White Reserve 2015 is the Estate’s fifth vintage of its classic Bordeaux white made to complement what people expect from a Morgenster red Bordeaux: elegance now, with concentration and more complexity to follow and longevity as a result.
Presented for the first time under a slightly changed label, Morgenster White Reserve 2015 was crafted by cellar master Henry Kotzé in consultation with Morgenster’s consultant, Pierre Lurton at Château Cheval Blanc. Grapes were sourced from the Schapenberg area not further than one kilometre from the cellar, with Sauvignon Blanc coming from western facing vines on decomposed granite and Semillon from older north-north-west facing vines on alluvial riverbed soils.
