CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK - NEW VINTAGE EXPECTED FEBRUARY 2013 Robert Parker 92 - 94 Points Wine Spectator 90 points DeMorgenzon are totally committed to excellence and focus on crafting wines which express the unique terroir and fruit within a classic structure - we believe that the finest South African wines combine New World-style fruit with Old World-style elegance. These Chenin Blanc vineyards are situated on the farm DeMorgenzon in the Stellenboschkloof. Planted in 1971 the trellised vineyard is managed to ensured natural high acidity and full flavour concentration. The yield was 5,8 (30hl/ha - only free-run juice used) tons per hectare. Grapes : 100% Chenin Blanc Region : Stellenbosch, South Africa Maker : Carl Van de Merwe Notes : Pale straw, bright with green tinge. Layers of pineapple, vanilla and quince on the nose. This flavour follows on the palate culminating in a tropical fruit salad, with crisp acidity perfectly in balance. The lingering aftertaste is of honeybush, grapefruit and a hint of ginger. Ageing : This wine is drinking very well now, will improve over the next four years and should last for many more to come. Serve : At 8 - 10 deg C as an appetiser or with fresh fish plates and light salads ABV : 13%

Winemaker's Notes:

De Morgenzon's (the morning sun) slopes rise from about 200m to nearly 400m above sea level and the views embrace Cape Town, Table Mountain, Cape Point, Cape Hangklip, the Hottentots Holland mountains, Helderberg and Simonsberg with the ocean as a backdrop. De Morgenzon likes to be known as 'a garden vineyard'. In Spring specially chosen wildflowers flourish between our vines. The thinking is that a biodiverse and ecologically sensitive environment produces infinitely better grapes and the beauty of the gardens is captured in every bottle of our wine. e Baroque music is piped through our vineyards 24x7 in the belief that the power of music positively influences the ripening process.
