DeMorgenzon DMZ Grenache Noir (2018)

New

Spice and mulled red fruit are present on a bright and elegant nose. The wine shows purity of fruit and a lovely depth of aroma. The palate is soft and appealing, yet with enough structure to provide a firm yet silky finish.

    DEMORGENZON HISTORY
    The Cape of Good Hope had been established by the Dutch East India Company in 1652 as a refueling station for their fleet, which needed to be supplied for the long journey east to Batavia (today Indonesia) or home to The Netherlands. Without stocking up on delicious South African fruit, vegetables and low fat meat, the sailors would have all succumbed to scurvy before reaching the end of their long journeys. These were, after all, the days of sail and we're talking of months at sea. 

    The Dutch Governor, Simon van der Stel, founded Stellenbosch in 1679. DeMorgenzon was originally a section of Uiterwyk, one of the oldest farms in South Africa. In 1682 Uiterwyk, the 'outer ward,' was let to Dirk Cauchet, Coetzee, Coetze, Kotzee, Coetchee or Koetchee, for he appears under each variation in the records (this is evidence that the Department of Home Affairs hasn’t improved over the years). It was finally granted to him by Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel in 1699. 

    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. 

    The first vines in the Stellenbosch Hills were planted during the early 1700's as the mild climate is ideally suited to the production of quality grapes. 

    In 2003 Wendy and Hylton Appelbaum bought DeMorgenzon. The estate has been transformed over the past few years.
