De Morgenzon Reserve Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch 2021

0 star rating 0 Reviews
From a parcel of mature vines yielding small volumes of pristine fruit, this is a concentrated yet refined barrel-fermented chenin with great length on the palate and certain ageing potential. Platter's 5* 2023: 'Noble & stately, 21 (95) maintains illustrious record with impeccable structure & nuance. Natural barrel ferment-10 months on lees in 30% new barrels provide breadth & texture to match voluptuous stonefruit, honey & hazelnut flavours'.

De Morgenzon

De Morgenzon is an award-winning property in the Stellenboschkloof, next door to Jordan Estate, just outside the old university town of Stellenbosch. It is a large and beautiful estate owned by Wendy and Hylton Appelbaum, known particularly for its chenin blanc and for its idiosyncratic practice of playing baroque music in the vineyards, as well as its ecologically and socially sensitive principles.

At 200 to 400 metres above sea level, the 55-hectare vineyard is quite high, with panoramic vistas of Cape Town and Table Mountain and Cape Point. However, instead of ‘mountain vineyards’ the team prefers to call their land ‘garden vineyards’, as the vines are interspersed with specially chosen wild flowers to introduce an element of biodiversity. The diverse soils have a primarily granite base.

The DMZ range was introduced to provide an entry point to the wider estate range and an introduction to the house style, which tends to be impressive yet understated, and consistently over delivers at its price.
