6 (1 x 6) 750ml
The Morgenhof Wine Estate is situated on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountains outside of Stellenbosch. Owned by Anne Cointreau, Morgenhof Wine Estate dates back to 1692, and produced some of the finest reds in the late 1990’s by CWG wine maker Rianie Strydom.

Produced only in the best possible vintage the ‘spectacularly flavourful 1998 was awarded a rare five star Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2002, 5*

Full medium ruby. Nose melds cassis fruit along with strong torrefaction notes of roast coffee and bitter chocolate; lots of sexy oak showing. Very dense, sweet and mouthfilling; not yet especially complex but possesses a suppler, more sophisticated texture than most topnotch South African cabernet. Impressively concentrated, ripely tannic and very long on the aftertaste.’ Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com (March 2002), 92/100
