Food Suggestions
Pair this wine with any type of dish as Sangiovese just loves food! Set it onto a checked tablecloth alongside rich tomato based dishes, fresh ciabatta and salads to complete a picture of Italian styled enjoyment. But then, on its own, it also offers a reflective journey into tasting pleasure.
In The Vineyard
The run up to ripening of the 2017 harvest was very dry, with insufficient winter rains and very little during budding. Happily the result was smaller and looser bunches with great concentration, flavour development and fantastic wines. As runaway veld fires at the start of the year had been a concern, all Morgenster’s vineyard blocks were analysed to ensure no smoke affected vines were used in production.
Additional Information
Cellar master, Henry Kotzé, has great respect and affection for this unique cultivar. For Morgenster Sangiovese 2017 he has styled it into a delicious anytime, anywhere wine, light fresh and fruit driven. “Think of it as Morgenster’s version of Chianti!” he says with a smile.
