MORGENHOF WINES

COMPLEX & ICONIC

Morgenhof Estate is situated on the fertile slopes of the Simonsberg mountain range in Stellenbosch. Historically a wine estate since 1692, we can trace the rich winemaking history of the estate back to the original French Huguenots. At Morgenhof the vineyards are farmed as ‘dry land’, which result in smaller yields and superior concentration of fruit in the berries.

 

The estate holds a great variety of soil types, mostly granite-derivatives such as Tukulu and Glenrosa, as well as altitudes ranging from 65-400 metres above sea level. By planting cultivars like Sauvignon Blanc in different sites on the estate, it enables us to attain different  characteristics and produce wines that reflect the complexities and variation of our area. The terroir of the Simonsberg-Stellenbosch ward favours red cultivars, especially Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, one of the wines Morgenhof is so well known for.

 

Morgenhof’s portfolio of wines include a mixture of red and white wines, ranging from the fresh Sauvignon Blanc; to the barrel-fermented Chenin Blanc.

 

The red wine range offers a selection of iconic single varietal wines including our revered Merlot; a vibrant Pinotage, as well as a Bordeaux-style blend which is also the flagship of the Morgenhof range.
