About this Item

Estate, 2000
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
In 1992, the late Giulio Bertrand retired to South Africa from Italy and bought the historic Morgenster farm on the slopes of the Schaapenberg, which dates back to 1711. Specialising in long-ageing Bordeaux-style reds, the director of Cheval Blanc, Pierre Luton, was hired as the consultant.

Critics Ratings

The debut vintage of the property's flagship blend, now well established among the Cape's finest Bordeaux-styled expressions.

'Cabernet Franc takes lead (51%) in the blend with Cabernet Sauvignon 16 months French oak, 80% new; 14% alc. Winemaker Marius Lategan says the hand of consultant master blender Pierre Lurton is written all over the wine' Platter SA Wine Guide 2004, 4 stars.

'The superbly poised and elegant 2000 Morgenster has aged beautifully. Much like a right-bank Bordeaux, it offers fine red fruits, florals and meaty complexity. Tasted alongside the 100 point Cheval Blanc 1998, it was the better wine on the night! '96 points Roland Peens June 2019
