Demorgenzon Maestro White Stellenbosch 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

*Decanter Wine Awards 2015 - Gold and International Trophy "Best White Blend under £15"* The De Morgenzon vineyard finds itself between mountains in the Stellenbosch region of South Africa and is known for its fairly unconventional cultivation techniques. Aside from growing specially chosen flowers between the vines, they also play Baroque throughout the vineyard 24/7. Whatever they are doing, they are doing it right - their wines are outstanding. This oak-matured white is full-bodied with ripe white and yellow fruit on the nose and a lovely texture in the mouth. Made from Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Roussanne and Viognier, this wine combines each grape's characteristics to produce a lovely harmonious fresh blend. Drink now to 2018. "There’s a winemaker of unquestionable skill and craft behind this outstanding fusion of varieties. The fruit is plentiful and rich, with notes of lemon, tropical fruit, white flowers, spices and herbs. It’s powerful and textured, with a gravelly sensation on the palate and a lengthy end" - Decanter Wine Awards 2015 - International Trophy "Best white Blend under £15"

De Morgenzon:
All wine estates in the Western Cape are beautiful and all have unique terroir.    However, we believe that DeMorgenzon is the most extraordinary of them all. Our slopes rise from about 200m to nearly 400m above sea level and our vistas embrace Cape Town, Table Mountain, Cape Point, Cape Hangklip, the Hottentots Holland mountains, Helderberg and Simonsberg with the ocean as a ba...

All wine estates in the Western Cape are beautiful and all have unique terroir.    However, we believe that DeMorgenzon is the most extraordinary of them all. Our slopes rise from about 200m to nearly 400m above sea level and our vistas embrace Cape Town, Table Mountain, Cape Point, Cape Hangklip, the Hottentots Holland mountains, Helderberg and Simonsberg with the ocean as a backdrop. While we could call ourselves 'mountain vineyards' we prefer to be known as 'garden vineyards'. In Spring specially chosen wildflowers flourish between our vines. We have no doubt that a biodiverse and ecologically sensitive environment produces infinitely better grapes and the beauty of our gardens is captured in every bottle of our wine.    We pipe Baroque music through our vineyards 24x7 and believe that the power of music positively influences the ripening process.  At DeMorgenzon we are totally committed to excellence and focus on crafting wines which express our 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. DeMorgenzon, 'the morning sun,' was so named because it is the first part of the Stellenboschkloof valley to see the sun because of its high altitude and aspects. We cover the top southern and eastern slopes of Ribbokkop, overlooking the pinnacle of Kanonkop from where a cannon was fired to alert the farms in the region that a ship had put into Table Bay. The first road from Cape Town to Stellenbosch ran through the Stellenbosch Kloof.  The first vines in the Stellenbosch Hills were planted during the early 1700's as the mild climate is ideally suited to the production of quality grapes.    In 2003 Wendy and Hylton Appelbaum bought DeMorgenzon. The estate has been transformed over the past few years.   Read less
