Lourens River Valley is Morgenster’s second wine, made (like the Grand Vin) with French consultant, Pierre Lurton. This is a very fine, Merlot and Cabernet Franc dominated red with smooth, nuanced tannins, notes of cut grass and graphite and stylish oak. 93pts Tim Atkin, MW
Picked ‘as fresh as can be’ according to winemaker Henry Kotzé, this is a barrel-fermented combination of Sauvignon Blanc with 43% Semillon. Tangy and lightly reductive, with wet stone aromas and appealing freshness and length. 91pts Tim Atkin, MW
Save 25%. Brand new to the First Lady range, this is the first vintage of this wine, made using South Africa’s signature red varietal. Aged for 14 months in old oak, to add structure and body without overpowering the rich flavours of dark cherry, chocolate and rooibos tea.
