The morning walk ...

Posted on February 01, 2012 by Nikki

This morning the furry kids decided that we had to take a stroll around the farm at 06h20.

You see there were important things to inspect, stuff that simply could not wait. Obviously.

These important items included vineyards, delicious almost-ripe grapes, holes, other dogs' bums and imaginary creatures that go bump in the bushes.

It is hip because it is harvest

Posted on January 26, 2012 by Nikki

Today Môreson was up at sparrows thanks to the official start of our 2012 harvest. Clayton and his team brought in the start of our Chardonnay base wine and - as you can tell from the pictures - the quality of the grapes this year is excellent.

In addition this juice, which will be used for the Môreson Solitaire NV Méthode Cap Classique, is sensational … very clean; very fresh. Impressive.

Diamonds are a Winemaker's Best Friend

Posted on September 29, 2011 by Nikki

We heard late yesterday that we'd been awarded not one but two Diamond Awards at The 2011 Winemaker's Choice Awards.

Our 2010 Môreson Pinotage and our 2008 Môreson Cabernet Franc walked off with top honours. We are so incredibly proud of these wines! If you're attending our inaugral Plant Fayre this weekend you'll be able to taste both of them in our Tasting Room.

Super!

The Môreson Premium Chardonnay 2010 Now Available

Posted on July 25, 2011 by Nikki

Every year we look at how we can add something more to the already exceptional Premium Chardonnay and I am delighted to be able to say that the 2010 is the best Premium Chardonnay we, as a farm, have produced to date. It shows significantly more fruit on the nose than the 2009 and the oak integration is – once again – sublime.

It is available, for purchase, through our online store. Don't miss out on this incredible wine. Buy a case today to avoid dismay!

Seriously you don't want to be the one person who misses out on this FAB.U.LOUS vintage.

P.S. For a 10% discount - available until the end of September 2011 - make use of the following coupon code: nik_fri
