We decanted the wine for 45 minutes before we poured the first glass. It was dark ruby in colour and looked pretty youthful. The wine showed blueberry, blackberry, black currant, Brussels sprouts and a vegetal component on the nose. On the palate the wine offered sweet dark fruit, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, raspberry, Brussels sprouts, spices and lots of tobacco, paired with medium-level acidity, chewy tannins and very good length. The heat from the alcohol was out of balance. A good bottle of wine, but it lacked the balance I am looking for. Also, I preferred e.g. the Capaia 2007, the Meerlust Rubicon 2006 and even the De Toren Z 2004, all at a lower price, so the QPR of the Morgenster disappointed me a little bit. Would probably not buy again. 89+
Dense dark opaque purple colour, beautiful nose of blueberry, dark cherry, blackberry, with a hint of tobacco , (there was a touch of alcohol at the start but after 2 hours this was well gone) when we poured it for dinner, palate big rich robust body, with lots of dark summer fruit, some vanilla. The nice acidity and tannins were well integrated with the opulent fruit. I did get a slightly green touch on the finish which I didn’t particularly enjoy – otherwise excellent Bordeaux style blend from South Africa
great bottle we got on our honeymoon at the winery a few years ago. still as great as then! dark fruits, rich, smoky flavor, tobacco / leather on the nose - great bordeaux style of wine...drinking beautifully right now.
