Morgenster Reserve Red 2009
Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
Cabernet Sauvignon leads the first impressions, as lead pencil, cigar box and cassis sweetness start to become distinct. Elegant and mouth filling at the same time. Sweeter dark berry fruit is very evident and contributes well to balancing the minerality which adds a lot of weight. Velvety tannins have a firmness and focus to the end. Beautiful balance and great finesse to round off a stunner of a vintage

In 1992 Giulio Bertrand retired to South Africa from Italy and bought the historic farm Morgenster, which dates back to 1711. Retirement however was to elude him because he became enthused with the potential of the terroir. Never one to set small goals, he determined to plant vines to produce wines that would rival the best of France.
Under Bertrand's inspiration and energy Morgenster produces two internationally acclaimed Bordeaux style red blends, one label being the flagship Morgenster and the other Lourens River Valley.
Four Bordeaux cultivars are grown on the Estate: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Morgenster wines are crafted to age well and many vintages can be enjoyed for 20 years and beyond. The Bordeaux blends of Morgenster are receiving consistent international and local recognition, both at launch date in their youth and for earlier vintages which confirms that they are ageing wonderfully.
