2015 De Morgenzon “Reserve” Chenin Blanc $35.95

Winery Tasting Notes:
“This show stopping white displays effusive aromas of white flower, stone fruit, honey and toast which erupt into opulent flavours of pear, orange blossom, caramel and spice. It’s a world class wine offering that strikes a brilliant balance between lush fruit and crisp, mouth-watering acidity.” 

“Wine Spectator” Tasting Notes: 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.”

“Wine Enthusiast” Tasting Notes: 92 Points
This is a lush, creamy Chenin, brimming with rich notes of honeycomb, honeydew, ripe peach and orange cream. The palate is full and toasty, though ample acidity helps to keep the mouthfeel bright. Notes of baking spice and toasted nuts unfold on the back and linger long on the close. It’s delicious now, but should hold and evolve well through 2021.
