De Morgenzon Reserve Chenin Blanc 2017 97 pts Platinum 2018 Decanter Magazine World Wine Awards

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

97 pts Platinum Medal 2018 Decanter Magazine World Wine Awards
Aromas of tropical fruit, vanilla, lemon, smoke and oak. The palate is fresh with great richness from the integrated oak. The result is seamless and sexy, the finish and aftertaste coming like a rolling, resounding thunder clap. This trail-blazing wine has more structure, texture, length and balance than commercially made Chenin, making it very food friendly. Built to last but really delicious now.
92 pts Vinous/Neil Martin Aug 2018
The 2017 Reserve Chenin Blanc comes from vines planted in 1972, whole-bunch-pressed with around 18% new oak. The classy, sophisticated bouquet features yellow plum, jasmine, hints of crushed stone and subtle lemon thyme scents. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, the prudent use of oak allowing the grape variety to flourish; hints of dried pineapple and passion fruit mingle with mirabelle toward the poised, animated finish. Superb.
95 pts Tim Atkin MW 2018
The wine that has made DeMorgenzon’s modern reputation under Carl van der Merwe, this 23,000-bottle blend really shows the intensity of the 2017 vintage. Apple and pear fruit are framed by scented oak and supported by a steely finish. A consistently impressive white. 2019-25

Winemaker Notes

This show stopping white displays effusive aromas of white flower, stone fruit, honey and toast which erupt into opulent flavours of pear, orange blossom, caramel and spice. It’s a world class wine offering that strikes a brilliant balance between lush fruit and crisp, mouth-watering acidity.
