Morgenster Lourens River Valley (archived)
Morgenster Lourens River Valley 2007 -  SOLD OUT
Colour: Fresh vibrant red brick colour.
Nose: Typical Morgenster red berries and cassis on the nose. Classical cigar box still lingering in the background. Some sweet liquorice aromas and spicy cloves in complete harmony.
Palate: Great entry with good sweet fruit and white chocolate on palate. Beautiful round supple tannins. Great balance and length to end off a well made wine. This wine will seamlessly integrate further into a masterpiece, like all before it.

Alc: 13.5  RS: 2.0  pH: 3.73  TA: 5.46  VA:  SO2:  FSO2:
Morgenster Lourens River Valley 2005 -  SOLD OUT
Colour: Concentrated and vibrant; dark mulberry red. 
Nose: This wine carries a subtle perfume of wild flowers, sub-tropical fruit, cinnamon and vanilla oak spice.
Palate: The palate senses blackcurrants, liquorice and spice, a freshly integrated, balanced acid and tannin ratio with youthful expression. The tannins have a firm grip that show the long path of evolution ahead, but they are certainly neither 'clawy' nor aggressive. The future bodes well for this 2005 vintage.

Alc: 14.5  RS: <2.5  pH: 3.6  TA: 5.85  VA:  SO2:  FSO2:
Morgenster Lourens River Valley 2004 -  SOLD OUT
Colour: Deeply coloured intensity that is synonymous with wines of the Morgenster vineyards. 
Nose: Ripe, sexy, expressive nose that gets one off to an excellent start; light toasted tobacco, liquorice, spice, herbs and minerals. 
Palate: The flavour profile is on a par with the complexity of the aromatics. One feels seduced by this modern wine's elegance and balance rather than sheer power. The fruit is sweet and sexy, while the finish is long and consistent.

Alc: 14.5  RS: 2.4  pH: 3.7  TA: 5.6  VA:  SO2:  FSO2:
Morgenster Lourens River Valley 2003 -  SOLD OUT
Colour: Deep ruby-red. 
Nose: Extremely elegant aromas of ripe red fruits, plum, cinnamon, liquorice, blond tobacco and a strong, mineral streak. 
Palate: Silky sweet in the mouth, with beautiful ripe fruit that's still young and wound tight. The finish is 'text book' fine-grain tannins and superb subtle persistence. Give this wine some special treatment by decanting it about an hour prior to serving and it will reward your efforts by emphasising these characteristics.

Alc: 14.0  RS: 2.4  pH: 3.58  TA: 6.3  VA:  SO2:  FSO2:
Morgenster Lourens River Valley 2002 -  SOLD OUT
Colour: A true reflection of the vintage, wines of distinction were produced; one of very few that reflects vibrant colour; a deep centre with an attractive stable Burgundian red tint.
Nose: Earthy, spicy aromas support and amplify nuances of liquorice, cinnamon, chocolate, mocha and vanilla. The bouquet reminds one of the scent of our indigenous plant fynbos; its herbaceous character. Aeration will release flavourful esters of dark mulberry, plum and strong red grape aromas.
Palate: The stimulation on the palate is mild and expressive to show great personality. Finely knitted tannins interlacing the spice and fruit flavour to offer a fresh entry with good structure and length to a pleasant finish. The character lingers and leaves a pleasant dryness.

Alc: 14.0  RS: <2.5  pH: 3.7  TA: 5.4  VA:  SO2:  FSO2:
Morgenster Lourens River Valley 2001 *Allocation -  SOLD OUT
Colour: Plum red with a concentrated core depth demonstrates the richness of the wine.
Nose: Aromas of black cherry, cassis, strawberry shortcake, toast and cedar.
Palate: The entry offers sweet nuances with toasty oak, a medley of fresh ripe berries and notes of marzipan and vanilla. The oak-spice compliments the fruit and expresses a good layer of acid and tannin balance. The mouth-feel is complimented by a well textured mid-palate weight, great overall elegance without presence of clumsiness on the finish.

Alc: 14.5  RS: 2.5  pH: 3.6  TA: 5.6  VA:  SO2:  FSO2:
Morgenster Lourens River Valley 2000 -  SOLD OUT
Colour: Strikingly fresh, concentrated and deep plum colour.
Nose: Fresh nuances of cherry, blackcurrant and liquorice carried by undertones of vanilla spice and some oak wood. A flinty, earthy, mushroom (or is it truffles) as a second nose gives one the impression of a unique, terroir-specific character rather than a certain cultivar expression.
Palate: The rather sweet nuances of the dominating Merlot component offers exactly those fruit flavours carried from the first impression. A classic style with a subtle mouth feel brought upon by the successful marriage of the components.

Alc: 13.7  RS: 2.7  pH: 3.4  TA: 6.0  VA:  SO2:  FSO2:
Morgenster Lourens River Valley 1999 -  SOLD OUT
Colour: Distinctive, intense ruby colour.
Nose: A savoury bouquet backed by spicy, vanilla nuances.
Palate: Hints of citrus and tea are complimented by cherry and rich red berry flavours that carry through from the nose to the palate.

Alc: 12.5  RS: <1.5  pH: 3.6  TA: 5.6  VA:  SO2:  FSO2:
Morgenster Lourens River Valley 1998 -  SOLD OUT
Colour: Intense plummy colour with a lively purple edge. 
Nose: Blackberries, raspberries and chocolate on the nose with whiffs of vanilla from the French oak.
Palate: Lush berry fruit on the palate, reined in by firm tannins; good balance with long, smooth finish.

Alc: 12.5  RS: <2.5  pH: 3.7  TA: 5.9  VA:  SO2:  FSO2:
