De Morgenzon owns 225 acres of land, half of which is planted to vines. The rest is carpeted in gardens with plants as varied as olives, roses, cornflowers and larkspur. Many of these flowers turn up between the vine... De Morgenzon owns 225 acres of land, half of which is planted to vines. The rest is carpeted in gardens with plants as varied as olives, roses, cornflowers and larkspur. Many of these flowers turn up between the vine rows'a biodiversity as complex as the layers of fruit and spice in this chenin. A phenolic grip and rocky mineral baseline frame the juicy tropical and citrus fruit flavors at its core, with notes of vanilla, star anise and the wild, fruity tone of chanterelle mushrooms woven in. It's seamless and elegant, built to last but ready now for crab or prawns.

This has a very creamy mouthfeel, with layers of fig, mango, peach and quince all stitched with toasted hazelnut and heather notes. The long, alluring finish lets the fruit fan out while keeping its balance. Drink now...

A beautifully balanced and attractive wine that’s delicious now but should hold well for another five years. Herbal fynbos aromas infuse the peach, melon and ripe fig core while accents of soft toast and nuttiness... A beautifully balanced and attractive wine that’s delicious now but should hold well for another five years. Herbal fynbos aromas infuse the peach, melon and ripe fig core while accents of soft toast and nuttiness add depth. The medium-weight mouth, framed by sweet, tropical-fruit flavored acidity, leads seamlessly onto the long and evolving finish.
