Morgenster Estate White 2018

morgenster estate white - wimbledon wine cellar

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

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.
