DeMorgenzon Method Cap Classique Chenin Blanc NV
A stunning sparkling Chenin Blanc from DeMorgenzon, Tim Atkin MW: 91 pts
The DeMorgenzon vineyard finds itself between mountains in the famous Stellenbosch region of South Africa, and is known for its fairly unconventional cultivation techniques. Aside from growing specially chosen flowers between the vines, they also play Baroque throughout the vineyard 24/7 to 'calm the vines'. Whatever they are doing, they are doing it right as their wines are simply outstanding! DeMorgenzon translates as ‘the morning sun,’ and was named due to it being the first part of the Stellenboschkloof valley to receive the morning sun, this is due to its high altitude and particular aspect.
DeMorgenzon's Method Cap Classique is a non-vintage and makes use of blending different base wines to maintain consistency in the final product.
"The palate is fresh in the mouth with touches of lime and green apple, a keen line of acidity with a lively citrus-fresh finish. Recommended."
Honey, white peach and hints of pineapple are complemented by savoury notes of roasted almond and toasted brioche. A fine mousse and refreshing acidity provide a remarkably refreshing drinking experience.
