'This is the fourth vintage of The Divas, after 2013, 2017 and 2019*, and is well up to the quality of its predecessors. Sourced from a single, one-hectare block, it's a rich, lees aged style with 40% new oak, 70% malolactic and a powerful yet taut palate. White flowers, beeswax, pear, nectarine and vanilla flavours combine beautifully on the palate. Drink 2022-30.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 96/100

'Fermented and matured in 300-litre barrels of which 40% were new for around seven months before a further seven months in concrete egg, it’s a striking wine. Smoky reduction before citrus, peach, dried herbs, spice and some leesy character on the nose while the palate is mouth-filling but not unctuous – great fruit definition and vibrant acidity before a dry finish. Lots of flavour and nice texture.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 95/100

Producer information DeMorgenzon 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. DeMorgenzon 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. DeMorgenzon is firmly entrenched as one of the best Stellenbosch producers of Chenin Blanc. Their DeMorgenzon 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.
