Reserve Chenin Blanc 2017 - DeMorgenzon


Reserve Chenin Blanc 2017


Awarded 97 points and a Platinum Award at the Decanter World Wine Awards, DeMorgenzon’s Reserve Chenin Blanc was also named one of Decanter’s Top Wines of 2018. Combine that with a Five Star rating from Platter’s Guide, scores of 95 points from two Masters of Wine and one of the most highly rated vintages in South African winemaking history, and you have a very serious oaky Chenin Blanc on your hands.

This show-stopping white displays honey nut cornflakes, honeysuckle, apple crumble, gingerbread spices, lemon zest, tropical fruit, smoke and vanilla, combined with – in the words of Decanter – “the finish and aftertaste coming like a rolling, resounding thunder clap.” That puts the gravitas of this wine perfectly, it’s as mesmerising, awe-inspiring and sense-stunning as a lightning storm. Under no circumstances should anyone miss out on the opportunity to taste DeMorgenzon’s Reserve Chenin Blanc 2017.

It’s no secret that we love DeMorgenzon, they make our own Chenin Blanc. The name means ‘morning sun’, because it’s the first winery in Stellenbosch to receive the sun each day because of its high altitude and steep slopes. Their vineyards are full of wildflowers, giving the estate the feel of botanic garden than a working farm. DeMorgenzon also play baroque and early classical music to their growing vines, as they enjoy it themselves and numerous studies have suggested that it can help fruit production and root growth. Their super talented winemaker Carl van der Merwe brings bags of experience to the team, including a stint at Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. This is a standout winery that does things a little differently.
