Tasting notes

A sumptuous, flavourful Chenin from this excellent Stellenbosch estate, which manages to combine richness with a delicate, elegant palate. The wine has been part-fermented in French oak barrels, which has added a delicious toastiness. This would be a fantastic wine to partner with crab cakes.


Chenin Blanc is grown predominantly in the Loire Valley in France but has become the signature grape of South Africa. This versatile white grape variety lends itself to many styles of wine: sweet, dry, oak-aged and sparkling. It generally produces a fresh, fruity wine with notes of peach, nuts and sometimes honey. Its hallmark is a refreshing acidity.

Expert Review

Baked apples and yellow plums here, with a little oak to round out the texture and a juicy, long finish. One for the quail and blood oranges.

Perfect food match

Crab cakes with chilli jam and Morgenhof Estate Chenin Blanc, Simonsberg-Stellenbosch

Crab cakes with chilli jam

Crab is lovely when it is turned in to a mini cake, it intensifies the flavours and bring out the richness of the brown meat, while enhancing the delicate white meat flavours. A light, toasty Chenin Blanc with a crisp finish, is an ideal match to this dish.
