- De Morgenzon DMZ Chardonnay 2013 Product #29297 (In Stock)
An extraordinary wine from a 400 year-old South African estate that pipes baroque music through the vineyards all day to keep the grapes happy! It's rare to find barrel fermented Chardonnay with such class and grace at this price point, but the folks at DeMorgenzon seem to do it year after year. While the 2012 is one notch richer and bolder, Steve Tanzer's 90 point review for the 2011 seems pretty spot on. "Subtly complex aromas of peach nectar, brown spices and musky lees. Nicely dry in the mouth, but with an insidious sweetness to the flavors of stone fruits, pineapple and spices. A firm spine of acidity contributes to the dry impression on the brisk, persistent finish. Lovely expressive chardonnay with restraint." Exactly!
