I turned 33 recently and was blessed to taste these wines from DeMorgenzon on my special day alongside some stunning Pinot Noir and Chardonnays from California which shook everyone's general understanding of a Cali chardonnay. This Chardonnay came out tops for me, alongside Greg Brewers Sta Rita Hills Chardonnay.
DeMorgenzon's Chardonnay vineyards benefit from cool morning sunlight and moderating sea breezes off nearby False Bay.
Golden with green hues. Hot toasted brioche with zesty marmalade; a backbone of lime and lemongrass with floral notes of honeysuckle and frangipani on the palate. Warm, rich vanilla and a creamy almond finish.
Vertical shoot positioned vineyards on weathered granite mid-slopes benefit form cool morning sunlight and moderating sea breezes off False Bay. Yields are typically low to moderate and grapes are very concentrated with good levels of natural acidity.
