Lourens River Valley Red Morgenster 2015

morgenster lourens river valley red -wimbledon wine cellar

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

Morgenster has been fashioning long-ageing Bordeaux-style reds for almost 2 decades. Like the fine wines of Bordeaux, the Morgensters need time to show their true beauty. Each vintage possesses extremely fine tannins, elegance and a deft balance not often found in SA reds. It’s no wonder really, considering they’ve had Pierre Lurton, the director of Cheval Blanc, as the consultant for the last 18 years.
