Our Wines - Cabernet Franc
Morgenster Lourens River Valley 2012
Colour: Opaque heart, with vibrant brick red edges.
Nose: Initial aromas are of black and red cherries, strawberry shortcake and cassis. There are also intriguing earthy and spicy nuances of liquorice, vanilla and sweet cinnamon. Aeration will release plum, mulberry and raspberry notes.
Palate: Silky smooth and sweet, with luscious ripe fruit woven into elegantly constructed tannins. This wine will reward even further if decanted.

Alc: 14.4  RS: 2.5  pH: 3.58  TA: 5.8  VA:  TSO2:  FSO2:
Morgenster Lourens River Valley 2011
Colour: Opaque centre with lighter brick red edges, young and vibrant red.
Nose: Sweet whiffs of blackberry are at the fore, with ripe bramble and fresh plum. Also very prominent and intriguing are Cabernet Franc’s cinnamon and nutmeg influences. There are some classical herbaceous notes found in lavender and thyme, ending with yummy coffee and toffee.
Palate: Elegant entry, very plush and immediately filling and rewarding. All the enticing sweetness evident on the nose returns to the fore. Acidity, savoury and sweetness blend harmoniously and the rounded silky tannins are already soft and velvety.

Alc: 14.06  RS: 2.25  pH: 3.66  TA: 5.69  VA:  TSO2:  FSO2:
Morgenster Lourens River Valley 2010
Colour: Opaque centre with lighter brick red edges, young and vibrant red.
Nose: Very fresh and vibrant flavor profile. Blackcurrant and cherry sweetness, with spicy clove, chive, anis and butter developments. Well integrated vanilla, cacao and caramel smoothes over into the palate.
Palate: Velvet entry, very plush and immediately filling. Sweeter dark berry fruits are very evident and contribute well to balance. Spicy sweet Cabernet Franc does well to pull the blend back into the classical category. Rounded silky tannins are already soft and velvety. Beautiful balance and great finesse round off a stunner of a vintage.Keeping with the philosophy behind Lourens River Valley Kotzé focused on letting the fruit do the talking, making the wine a true reflection of the terroir and what can be achieved with it in any given vintage. It was a smaller than usual crop but excellent quality prevailed. For Morgenster, the 2010 vintage can be tipped as a winner.

Alc: 14.57  RS: 2.80  pH: 3.49  TA: 6.3  VA:  TSO2:  FSO2:

Alc: 13.52  RS: 2.8  pH: 3.55  TA: 5.7  VA: 0.65  TSO2:  FSO2:
