Morgenhof Morgenhof Estate Simonsberg-Stellenbosch Sa 2004
Morgenhof Estate wine is the flagship of the eponymous estate and a blend of<br/>65% Cabernet Sauvignon 25% Merlot 6% Malbec 4% Cabernet Franc. The bouquet<br/>exhibits powerful notes of black fruit, with cherries and blackberries to the<br/>fore, and notes of red plum. On the palate there are hints of tobacco,<br/>indicating the beginnings of maturity, along with hints of dried fruit, cassis<br/>and soft red fruit. Although a substantial amount of new oak has been used the<br/>wine is sufficiently concentrated to absorb it comfortably. The tannins are<br/>ripe, the acidity in balance, and the finish long.
The illustrious Morgenhof Wine Estate is situated on the slopes of the Simonsberg mountains outside Stellenbosch. This area is renowned for the high quality of its grapes and the distinctive terroir is reflected in the character of the exceptional wines. Owned by Mrs Cointreau, Morgenhof Wine Estate dates back to 1692 and consists of 212 hectares of which 74 hectares are under vines, producing approximately 35,000 cases a year.
