2017 Reserve Chenin Blanc, DeMorgenzon, Western Cape

Powerful notes of apple and candied lemon, with a lovely lick of oak spice. The palate is structured with incredible intensity, and a really long, fresh and focused finish. Very good indeed.

TASTING NOTES

Part of the DeMorgenzon range since 2005, this superb Chenin comes from five very different sites on the farm. Rich and complete, it combines citrus, stone and tropical fruit notes with subtle reduction, a hint of orange zest, stony acidity and perfectly judged 22% new wood.
