DeMorgenzon DMZ Chenin Blanc
Find out why Chenin's on the rise!

DeMorgenzon DMZ Chenin Blanc

2015, Western Cape South Africa

Chicken Pork Shellfish
  • Chenin Blanc is to South Africa what Marlborough Sauvy is to NZ - it's what they do best!
  • A fresh, dry style white with a soft, rich texture (think Chardonnay or Viognier)
  • Perfect with roast chicken or pork, lobster, or anything in a creamy sauce!

Chenin Blanc is to South Africa what Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is to NZ, Shiraz to Australia or Malbec to Argentina. It's what they do best!

Being the largest producer of Chenin Blanc in the world South African producers like DeMorgenzon will be stoked to know that this exciting white grape is coming back into fashion. That's mainly because more dry styles are now being made rather than the slightly sweeter (off dry) stuff traditionally made in France. Let's not even talk about how it was used as a cheap wine filler back in the 80s!

Chenin is a commonly known as a dry, zesty white but the higher quality versions (like this) are slightly oaked to give it a soft, rich texture similar to an oaked Chardonnay or Viognier. A fresh, dry style this makes the ideal partner to roast chicken, pork, lobster or anything in a creamy sauce.

DeMorgenzon literally means 'the morning sun' - that's because they're the first in the Stellenbosch Valley to see it thanks to the high altitude of their vineyards. It's time to see the light, give Chenin a whirl and find out why this style's on the rise.
