MKM | Pinotage '16

"A site-specifc Stellenbosch Heritage Pinotage"

It’s 1994 … a huge year for South Africa and a first for Môreson

The scene: A converted shed (still a central part of our present-day winery operations) a press, some tanks, a consultant, passion to the n-th degree and just enough knowledge to be dangerous.

The proprietor, Richard, his wife - Eveanne - and their then Gardener, Moraka “Klaas” Maffa set about producing Môreson’s maiden vintage of wines. This marked the beginning of a wine journey that has spanned 25 years. A voyage filled with all ups and downs, joys and sorrows that a quarter-of-a-century passage of time allows for.

Klaas Maffa - who embarked on this wine journey from the very start - was a trailblazer. Originally from Limpopo he and his wife, Betty, travelled to the Western Cape seeking a life-changing opportunity. He joined our team as a member of the Garden Division and quickly worked his way up. This journey culminated with him in the position of “Assistant Farm Manager and Viticulturalist”.

Klaas sadly passed away in early 2011. To celebrate his life, his spirit and his attitude we named our flagship Pinotage Moraka.Klaas.Maffa.

This wine, like the man, knows no limitations.

# ONE|HAPPY|VALLEY

Our family have been custodians of Môreson for the past 35 years. Over the course of three generations this 30Ha farm, located at the end of the aptly named Happy Valley Road, has been transformed into sanctuary it is today.

Pioneers of the Wine of Origin Franschhoek (#WoOF) movement, Môreson wines have been at the forefront of putting the Franschhoek Wine Appellation on the map, both in the local South African market and abroad.

As a wine grower | producer we pride ourselves in our continued investment in the quality of our products.

“We live and die by our credo: Quality. Soul. Integrity.”
