Tasting Note

Beautifully golden, with a green hue. Starting off ripe and fresh, with aromas of apricot, pineapple and litchi, hidden aromas of banana, butter, caramel, and zippy citrus, quince and lime then come to the fore. Very well poised, perfectly integrated oaking with balanced ripeness and minerality zing off each other. Melt in the mouth acidity has great staying power and adds a well crafted focus and length.

Winemaking

Winemaker Corius Visser believes in a minimalistic style of winemaking which he says suits the grapes and the area. The harvested grapes are hand sorted before being de-stemmed, lightly crushed and then gravity fed into stainless steel tanks to begin skin conditioning and primary fermentation. This is completed in five to eight days. For some varieties, extended skin contact prior to fermentation is allowed to maximize colour extraction. Maturation takes place in French oak barrels. The length of time spent in barrels and the percentage of new wood used varies from year to year and is dictated by the fruit in the specific vintage. Until this stage the different cultivars are vinified separately. Then the crucial art of blending begins. Morgenster's wines showcase the Estate's philosophy of letting the vintage determine the blend.

Food Recommendation

This is a versatile wine, delicious on its own, yet enhancing a wide range of food. It pairs well with seafood, goat’s cheese, oysters, grilled fish, sushi, pasta, pesto and mixed salads and will reward serving with salmon, seared tuna and mussels cooked in white wine.
