Oldenburg and DeMorgenzon dazzle at International Wine Challenge, London

iwc2014TEN YEARS ago Oldenburg Vineyards in Banghoek outside Stellenbosch en route to Franschhoek hadn’t yet bottled their first wine. Today they have a growing reputation for good Chenin, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, two of which have excelled at one of the world’s biggest wine shows, now in its 32nd year…

Also stepping into the spotlight more than once at the 2015 International Wine Challenge awards function was DeMorgenzon, whose 2014 Reserve Chenin was judged to be the best example of the variety at a show contested by producers from 47 countries.
