Wine Spectator 91 points - A ripe, juicy style with lots of pear, quince and peach flavors rolling along, lined with a light hazelnut edge on the finish. On the showy side but has ample zip. Drink now through 2016. 200 cases imported. -JM  (Jun 15 2015)

Vinous 91 points - (fermented in barrel, then aged for ten months in oak): Good bright yellow. Very pure, vibrant aromas and flavors of subtle stone fruits, brown spices and hazelnut oil. Densely packed and broad but also boasts lovely finesse of texture. A touch of sweetness (3.8 g/l) is nicely leavened by firm (6.8 grams) acidity and underlying minerality. Finishes lightly phenolic and seriously long. Classy juice--and still a baby. The 2013 bottling was the Platter Guide’s white wine of the year in the 2015 edition. 91+ Points (Jun 2015)

Technical notes
The grapes were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. Juice was transferred to French oak barrels with no settling. Fermentation occurred naturally in French oak barrels of which 66% was new. The wine was then aged on the gross lees for 9 months after which a barrel selection was done, with the selected portion being aged for a further 3 months. The wine was bottled with no cold stabilsation and minimal filtration.

DeMorgenzon, ’the morning sun,’ was so named because it is the first part of the Stellenboschkloof valley to see the sun because of its high altitude and aspects. We cover the top southern and eastern slopes of Ribbokkop, overlooking the pinnacle of Kanonkop from where a cannon was fired to alert the farms in the region that a ship had put into Table Bay. The first road from Cape Town to Stellenbosch ran through the Stellenbosch Kloof.
