De Morgenzon received stellar accolades for their 2019 release. This ‘rich and exotic’ Chenin is a true representation of winemaker Carl van der Merwe’s skill and precision. Showcasing the true essence of the Old Vine Project, it provides immense drinking pleasure for the price.

'Staggered harvesting ensures optimum ripeness & balance on 2019. Explosion of apple, almond & lime, with toasty nuance from French oaking (20% new, 8 months). Thrilling fine acidity & wood woven into intense fruit profile, reflecting both special provenance of the vines & the synergy between Old World elegance & New World opulence. Also in magnum, as Chardonnay.' – Plater's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'It's always a toss-up between the Reserve Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc at DeMorgenzon, as both are excellent, but in 2019 I slightly prefer the latter. Sourced from the four best blocks on the farm, this is rich and exotic, with toasty 10% new French wood, taut underlying acidity and the concentration to develop in bottle. Drink 2021-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 95/100

'Crisp green apple, sweet vanilla and toasted sesame aromas. Layered palate with savoury spice notes and leafy green fruit.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 92/100 (Silver)

'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.' – Carl van der Merwe, Winemaker

Producer information De Morgenzon was originally a section of Uiterwyk, one of the oldest farms in South Africa. It was purchased in 2003 by Wendy and Hylton Appelbaum who intricately studied the land and climate in order to establish the best varietal blocks and vineyards. De Morgenzon means ‘the morning sun,’ since its location of 200m to 400m above sea level, is the first to see the rising sun. The 224 acre property is known for its beautiful gardens and wildflowers which grow between the vineyards. De Morgenzon is firmly entrenched as one of the best Stellenbosch producers of Chenin Blanc. Their De Morgenzon Reserve, with its many ‘best in class’ awards, attests to this. However, it is their ultra-premium The Divas Chenin Blanc that raises the bar.
