Today’s Deal ~ ’15 DeMorgenzon Reserve Chenin Blanc

 $34.95/btl or $27.95/btl on 6+!



CHENIN BLANC!  Probably isn’t going to be on your list of “Must Try Wines” but that’s because most people just don’t have the experience tasting/purchasing Chenin Blanc (or at least the tasty ones).   Simple fact is the entire world production of Chenin Blanc is roughly 94,500 acres, with the largest growing region being South Africa with 46,500 acres planted and accounting for nearly HALF THE ENTIRE WORLD’S PRODUCTION.  Here in the ENTIRE UNITED STATES we have less than 8000 acres planted, which is a far cry from the 98,000 ACRES OF CHARDONNAY PLANTED IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA ALONE!  Circling back, it’s just hard to find a good-to-great-to-OUTSTANDING Chenin Blanc from your local wine merchant.  Well, that’s where Carpe Vino is going to help you out!


The 2015 DeMorgenzon Reserve Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch, South Africa is not only hands down one of the best CB’s but ranks among the OVERALL BEST WHITE WINES we have tasted in the past 12 months.  Using 44-year-old, low-yielding bush vines, in mountain vineyards approximately 6 miles from the sea, only the best bunches are hand-picked and crushed for the minuscule production of this wine.  There were 300 cases exported and California received only 25 cases of which Carpe Vino purchased 20!  We are down to our last five cases and this beautiful weather has inspired us to get this into your hands at an even lower 6+ bottle price.  Regular retail is $34.95/bottle but today and while inventory lasts, the 6+ bottle price is $27.95 or 20% off!   I can’t stress to you enough, this is a phenomenal bottle of wine and worth every bit of $34.95/bottle but at $27.95 it’s a STEAL!

“Wine Spectator” 92 Points!

“A broad, creamy, honeyed version, with an alluring toasted hazelnut accent framing the core of creamed peach, apricot and melon flavors. The long finish lets matchstick and dried quince notes in. Not shy in style. Drink now through 2019.”

What Is Chenin Blanc?

A light-bodied white wine similar to both Pinot Gris or Sauvignon Blanc. What makes Chenin Blanc wine unique is its ability to taste amazing either as a sweet or dry wine.


Chenin Blanc is growing in popularity and this is because more wineries in South Africa (the world’s largest producer of Chenin Blanc) are making it dry. Traditionally, the first Chenin Blanc wines from France were off-dry (aka sweet). Today however, there’s so much variety in Chenin Blanc that it’s time to learn what you’ve been missing out on.


Chenin Blanc is a versatile zesty white wine that pairs particularly well with Mediterranean food, sushi and even hearty meats like veal. Find out more about Chenin Blanc food pairings and its many styles.
