DeMorgenzon Chenin Blanc 2020
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.

VINTAGE
On the back of a cold and wet winter, the 2020 growing season began very early, with
homogenous budburst and even shoot growth. Summer was relatively mild, without the
heatwaves often experienced in the Cape. The resultant crop retained high levels of natural
acidity and abundant concentration of flavour. Particularly exceptional are the white wines of
2020, whilst the reds display early promise thanks to intense colour and tannin concentration.
VINIFICATION AND MATURATION
The grapes were picked in three different passes in order to achieve optimum ripeness and
balance in the final wine. The grapes were handpicked in the early morning hours, with bunch
selection done in the vineyard. Fruit was cooled down and then gently pressed, whole bunch, and
the juice was settled overnight without the use of settling enzymes. Fermentation occurred
naturally in French oak barrels (20% new), using indigenous yeasts, with about 20% of the
volume completing malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged on its lees in barrel for 10
months, without batonage.
