Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chardonnay from South Africa opens with a fragrant vanilla oak and lemon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, crisp and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a mild lemon with notes of vanilla oak and butter. I also detected a hint of quinine and honey in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This wine would pair well with linguini with clam sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: DMZ is De Morgenzon's value label, where the objective is to produce classic, elegant, well-balanced wines which over-deliver in terms of quality for price. Citrus and tropical fruit aromas lead to a ripe, concentrated palate abundant with flavors of peach and pineapple. Delicate hints of vanilla, caramel, nuts and toast are backed by a bright acidity with a beautiful mineral edge.
