De Morgenzon DMZ Chenin Blanc 2015 $25 ★★★★½

This is the first time I’ve ever tried South African Chenin and if this is the standard, I’m a total convert.  Grown in the upper reaches of the Stellenboschkloof Valley in the Stellenbosch region, the vines which – no joke- they play baroque music to 24/7, have produced a creamy apple, crème caramel and nashi-scented wine with tangy, honeyed stonefruit flavours.  Food wise, no question, it’s got to be fennel-crusted roast pork with lashings of apple sauce.  www.finewinedelivery.co.nz
