Morgenster Estate Reserve 2010
Colour: Bright, deep plum red. Vibrant, youthful appearance.
Nose: An explosion of fruit and perfume. There are blackcurrants and raspberry notes intermingled with rose petal and jasmine flavours. Underlying layers of cherry and violet are strengthened by more classical licorice, thyme, forest floor aromas.
Palate: Offerings of great opulence, balanced perfectly with a natural acidity that is the backbone to this age worthy wine. Once in the mouth, classical aromas spread, showing pencil shavings and earthy undertones with a more prominent concentration of sweet cherry and blackcurrant. Vanilla, mocha and some oak hover in the background.

Morgenster Estate Reserve 2005 -  SOLD OUT
Colour: Deep, concentrated burgundy red; reminiscent of heavy velvet drapes.
Nose: The first impression is clearly a lovely, rich dark chocolate with attractive spicy support. There are nuances of black cherries, black berries and ripe plums.
Palate: Slightly candy-coated tannins that create the impression of the interaction between fruit, acid and tannin. The black cherries on the nose come through to the palate as cherry kernels; marzipan and stone fruit. The finish is impressively long.

Alc: 14.5  RS: 2.5  pH: 3.6  TA: 5.65  VA:  TSO2:  FSO2:
Morgenster Estate Reserve 2004 -  SOLD OUT

Nose: Terrific intensity and purity highlight a gorgeous perfume of sweet black cherries, roast herbs, meat juices, kirsch, blackberries, spice ... as the wine evolves the aromas come in waves. 
Palate: If pressed for a one word descriptor, opulent would be the word for the 2004 Flagship of the Morgenster Estate. It's full bodied with more structure, tannin and delineation than the top vintages 2003 and 2001.

Alc: 14.5  RS: 2.6  pH: 3.68  TA: 5.8  VA:  TSO2:  FSO2:
