DeMorgenzon, Stellenbosch - South Africa's Finest White Blend,
The property can trace its roots back to the 17th Century but its rapid rise up the ranks started in 2003, when Wendy and Hylton Appelbaum bought the property and set the transformation is motion. The atmosphere on the estate positively bubbles with energy and excitement - driven by the indomitable Wendy and winemaker Carl van der Merwe. I doubt if there are many wineries in the world with better vistas; the steep slopes rise from about 200m to nearly 400m above sea level and take in views of Cape Town, Table Mountain, Helderberg and Simonsberg and with the ocean as a backdrop.
The Appelbaums are committed environmentalists and firmly believe that a bio-diverse and ecologically sensitive environment produces better grapes - examples of this can be found throughout the property with the encouragement of native species and wild flowers which can be found between the planted rows.
2013 DMZ Chardonnay, DeMorganzon
Cool fermented to preserve the delicate aromas and oak-matured to give depth this excellent bottle of Chardonnay has hints of vanilla and tropical fruits on the nose. Rich and rounded in the mouth, full-flavoured with notes of peach, apricot and vanilla. Very good now this wine will last and benefit from a year or three in the cellar.
2011 DMZ Syrah, DeMorganzon
Bright, ruby-red colour with smoky aromas of black and blue berries. Lovely ripe fruit on the palate, silky tannins red berries, mocha, touch of peppery spice. Good balance and a medium long finish - very good value for such a stylish wine.
