DeMorgenzon’s Reserve Chenin Blanc comes from low-yielding vines that were planted in 1972 in decomposed granite soils. This show stopping white displays effusive aromas of white flower, stone fruit, honey and toast which erupt into opulent flavours of pear, orange blossom, caramel and spice. It’s a world class wine offering that strikes a brilliant balance between lush fruit and crisp, mouth-watering acidity. A complex white which could pair with a range of poultry or fish dishes, however it is simply delicious without food too.

    Description

    Translated, DeMorgenzon means simply ‘the morning sun’ and was so named because it is the first part of the Stellenboschkloof Valley to see the sun due to its high altitude and aspect. Since 2008 Baroque music has been piped into the vineyards all day, every day. Perhaps a quirk, but there is some (limited) data to suggest vines exposed to this music are healthier than those growing in silence. Once the harvest has completed and the wines have been placed into barrel, music is again streamed throughout DeMorgenzon’s cellars, surrounding the wines in rich sound waves, permeating the oak and steel as they travel, with every single note. Whilst the techniques might not be typical, the wines speak for themselves!

    The 2019 Chenin Blanc Reserve was picked over three passes through the vines and matured in 20% new oak for 10 months on the lees. It has a clean and precise bouquet of orange pith, light apricot and touches of sesame oil and linseed. The palate is well balanced with a slightly oily opening, zesty acidity and a pure, almost Germanic finish that gently fans out. Very fine.
