Additional Information
Morgenster Estate Reserve 2014 once again showcases the Estate’s philosophy behind its flagship wine, which is to reflect Morgenster’s exceptional terroir in the best possible blend created within harvest conditions.

Grapes from carefully selected clonal material came from vineyard sites with a diversity of soils, from deep decomposed granite to stonier decomposed Table Mountain Sandstone. Vines, varying in age from 10 to 22 years, yielded pristine fruit.

As usual blending was done in consultation with Pierre Lurton of Château Cheval Blanc and cellar master Henry Kotzé is more than happy with the result; “This is Morgenster Reserve, so expect nothing less than amazing. These wines are crafted from the Schapenberg mountainsides to create memories from now until 20 years in the future”, he says.
