DeMorgenzon Stellenbosch Reserve Chardonnay
Powerful dry white wine with an intense aroma of ripe tropical fruits, such as mango and pineapple, toast and oak. The palate is powerful and round and develops fragrant with a soft and persistent aftertaste.
DMZ from Stellenbosch
"Intervening in the winemaking process: as little as possible and as much as necessary." That is the simple credo of Carl van der Merwe, the very talented winemaker of DeMorgenzon. It fits in perfectly with the business philosophy of this beautiful domain in Stellenbosch. Biodiversity, ecological balance, sustainability and minimalist working in the basement are of paramount importance here. The vineyards are affectionately called 'garden vineyards', because of the wild flowers that bloom between the vines.
All this with the aim to let the beauty of the vineyards speak as much as possible in the wines. They prove that they succeed in this at DeMorgenzon with their beautiful and exclusive Reserve series.
The Chardonnay is a textbook example of high-level wood-aged chardonnay from a temperate climate. The grapes grow on granite slopes. Due to the constant cooling sea breeze from False Bay, the grapes retain sufficient freshness. Once ripe, the grapes are harvested by hand. The wine is fermented in French oak (partly new) and part then undergoes malolactic fermentation. This is done to create the perfect balance between fraîcheur and creaminess. After further aging in oak in contact with the yeast residues, the wine is bottled unfiltered.

With its enormous fruit intensity, fine acids and intense structure, this Reserve is a pleasure to drink young, but can also easily mature in the bottle for a few years. If you want to drink this Chardonnay in his youth, we advise you to give the wine some air beforehand by decanting it. This top wine is best served in combination with a refined, creamy dish.
Already well drunk and at least 4 to 5 years shelf life.
