" Rich with the scent of corn silk and pineapple, this is broad in the middle, tight and spicy in the end. A clean chardonnay without a lot of oak to dress it up, this presents the grape finely ripened. Ready to chill for aperitifs. "
Alluring citrus and tropical fruit aromas segue into a lush, concentrated palate. Ripe flavors of peach, pineapple and citrus are tinged with delicate hints of vanilla, butterscotch, caramel and toast, all backed by bright acidity and a beautiful minerally edge. ~ Winery notes
De Morgenzon WineryView all from De Morgenzon Winery
DeMorgenzon is Dutch for "the morning sun," a fitting name for this boutique property high on the Stellenboschkloof, which is the first to be touched by the rising sun's rays. DeMorgenzon's high altitude vineyards command sweeping views of Table Mountain and Cape Point, where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. Embracing the philosophy that a biodiverse and ecologically sensitive environment produces infinitely better grapes, proprietors Wendy and Hylton Appelbaum have established DeMorgenzon as a 91 hectare garden interspersed with 55 hectares of carefully tended vineyards, where abundant wildflowers flourish between the vines. The vineyards are currently farmed naturally, and the estate is in the process of converting to organic farming.
