Named in honour of the Baroque music DeMorgenzon pipe to their vines, Maestro White is a Rhône-style blend of white grapes.
The nose shows notes of concentrated orange and yellow stone fruits, with a hint of spice, citrus and blossoms. The palate is full-bodied, textured and nuanced with a lingering aftertaste. A blend of 32% Roussanne, 23% Chardonnay, 23% Chenin Blanc, 15% Viognier and 7% Grenache Blanc.
DeMorgenzon, meaning 'the morning sun' in Dutch, is a historic South African vineyard tracing its lineage back to 1682. This 91-hectare garden vineyard, perched above the Stellenboschkloof Valley, offers panoramic views of Cape Town, Table Mountain, Cape Point, Hangklip, the Hottentots Holland mountains, Helderberg, and Simonsberg, with the ocean as a backdrop.
Under the visionary ownership of Wendy and Hylton Appelbaum, the estate underwent a revitalisation since 2003, prioritizing biodiversity and environmental preservation.
DeMorgenzon's unique touch lies in the melodies of classical music that echo throughout the vineyards, winery, and cellar, nurturing the growth of healthy vines and ensuring desired phenolic ripeness. With south and southeast-facing vineyards at 200 to 400 meters, featuring ancient, decomposed granite soils, DeMorgenzon produces wines of finesse and pure fruit expression.
Guided by winemaker Alastair Rimmer, DeMorgenzon upholds its reputation for crafting exceptional wines that reflect the terroir and rich heritage of South African winemaking.
