Lourens River 1999
The second wine from Morgenster has matures into a gem. Very elegant claret-like qualities – tight fine-grained tannins, superb fruit against a dusty, reserved, dry palate. Remarkably composed.
For December month we are offering holiday makers intimate experiences of the unique Constantia Valley wine route. This will include meeting their lively key personalities! The duration will be a minimum of five hours and could include the whole day. The time will fly past, as you meet a winemaker, enjoy a personal vineyard walk with experts, drive around the land in farm vehicles, all helping you to learn and understand the uniqueness of these very special sites. This will be followed up with a private tutored wine tasting, before heading to the next inside-track vineyard experience. The friendly resident expert wine adventure guide will provide context, history and current status quo, delivered with humour, passion and anecdotes. Finish off with a stylish fine dining lunch or dinner at ‘top 5’ restaurant. Book now.
Wine holds off Beer as most Googled Alcohol Beverage of 2014
It’s been a long year of hard drinking and I’m sure we will all end strong with the festive season upon us. Yes the finish line is in sight, so dig deep, down your glass and pour another damn Chardonnay.
2014 was a tough year for wine online. It might be the most googled alcohol beverage of the last 10 years, but with a steady decline and the rise of craft beer, for a few months in 2014 beer surpassed wine in search results.
