More Information

In the cellar

The wine was matured for 18 months in French oak, 25% 1st fill, 15% in 2nd fill, the rest in 3rd fill.

In the vineyard

2015 season will be remembered as one of the driest and earliest in years. A somewhat smaller wine grape harvest promising exceptional wines. Warm weather in August resulted in earlier bud break, after which a wam, dry and windy summer kept vineyard growth under control and accelerated ripening. Lower temperatures at night in February contributed towards good colour and flavour, especially in the red cultivars. This was one of the best, if not the best, harvest in years.

Ageing

This wine can be enjoyed now, however, it can also benefit from cellaring and can be stored for a further eight to ten years if stored correctly.

Cultivar

Merlot (38%), Cabernet Franc (34%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%), Petit Verdot (13%)

Food Pairing

This wine pairs beautifully with bold meaty dishes. The Morgenster Lourense River Valley 2015 will also compliment delicious, flavoursome meals such as duck and ostrich. A great match with wild mushroom risotto and a rocket & basil salad.
