Regarded as one of the industry’s most prestigious awards, the Decanter World Wine Awards have been announced, and included in their list of top wines is Morgenster Estate’s The Reserve 2016 which scored an impressive 95 points.

Already an award-winning wine, which includes being named Trophy Winner at the 2023 Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards, The Reserve 2016 is Morgenster Estate’s crown jewel - the epitome of its perpetual pursuit of excellence. This elegant blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot reflects the soul of their unique soil at the foothills of the Schapenberg Mountains in Somerset West. It’s the result of both nature and nurture – a true labour of love.

An elegant and complex wine to enjoy for special occasions or pair with structured hearty dishes and bold flavours such as grilled and roast lamb with garlic and rosemary, beef brasato or mushroom risotto.

A limited release wine, The Reserve 2016 is available directly from the Estate’s Tasting Room, online wine shop or selected outlets at R645 per bottle.


The award-winning Stellenbosch wine estate won GOLD at The Trophy Wine Show for its 2023 Chardonnay! In addition, the wine was awarded SILVER with an impressive 91 points at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards!

The 2023 vintage is only the estate’s second since 1993, making this achievement even more special! These prestigious awards highlight the winemaking team’s dedication and talent.

The 2023 Chardonnay boasts rich citrus, orange blossom and yellow flower notes which merge with hints of yellow peach and Crème Brûlée. A fresh acidity combines with the rich and creamy mid palate to finish with a lingering mineral core.

This is a wine to savour on its own or to enjoy with richer Thai and Indian curries and tuna steaks. It is available at the estate or online at R210 per bottle.
