Reviews of purchase Morgenster, Lourens River Valley, 2010
Wine of dark ruby color with cherry highlights.
The taste of the wine is round, full, with a silky texture, flexible tannins and a persistent aftertaste with a pleasant sourness.
The wine demonstrates a complex aroma, woven from notes of ripe black berries and fruits, spices and black pepper.
The wine goes well with rich dishes, as well as with chicken, salads and meat delicacies.

The berries grow in the company's vineyards in the Stellenbosch region. At the end of the harvest, the fruits are pressed, followed by fermentation in steel tanks with strict temperature control. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The wine goes well with rich dishes, as well as with chicken, salads and meat delicacies.
Situated at the foot of Mount Helderberg in Somerset West, Morgenster Estate has a rich history spanning over 300 years. In 1992, Giulio Bertrand purchased the farm and set about restoring it. First, he began to restore the estate, built in 1786, and then turned his attention to the hill in the backyard, which reminded him of his home in Italy. Giulio's main idea was the production of wines with an Italian character and a highlight of South Africa.
Sadly, Giulio Bertrand passed away in 2018. His daughters, Federica and Alessandra, continued the family business. In addition to wine production, Morgenster produces olive oil, olive paste and canned olives.
