DeMorgenzon’s Reserve Chenin Blanc comes from low-yielding vines that were planted in 1972 in decomposed granite soils. 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 that strikes a brilliant balance between lush fruit and crisp, mouth-watering acidity.
"This superb Chenin comes from five very different sites on the farm." Tim Atkin MW

Who said that white wine will not cope with the richness of red meat if this is accompanied by a piece or lobster or grilled gambas for example? If you are a Surf & Turf lover like us, and perhaps do not fancy a red wine, you should not disqualify full bodied and silky smooth, barrel aged white wines. Look for a dry and fruity white wine that has enough intensity to stand up to the dish. A creamy, full bodied Chardonnay from California, Australia, South Africa and of course high quality white Burgundy will be the ultimate pairing. A barrel aged Viognier like Condrieu will be another luxury option. One of our all-time favourite pairings with Surf & Turf is this Reserve Chenin which you must try!
