DeMorgenzon DMZ Rose 2021

DeMorgenzon DMZ Rose 2021

R155,00

The DMZ Rosé has a delicate rose gold appearance and exhibits a complex nose of summer flowers, exotic spice, and citrus rind.

More Information

In the cellar

Hand harvested fruit is gently crushed, then immediately pressed to avoid excessive colour extraction. Cold fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, followed by a minimum of 10 months ageing on the yeast lees before bottling preparations commence

In the vineyard

The grapes used to produce this wine were sourced exclusively from DeMorgenzon’s own vineyards, noted for their weathered granite soils and cool, South-facing slopes. Trellised vineyards are managed with open canopies to ensure naturally high levels of acidity and flavour concentration. Sunlight exposure allows these grapes to be harvested earlier with a lower sugar level and lighter colour essential to making world-class rosé. On the back of a cold and wet winter, the 2020 growing season began very early, with homogenous budburst and even shoot growth. Summer was relatively mild, without the heatwaves often experienced in the Cape. The resultant crop retained high levels of natural acidity and abundant concentration of flavour. Particularly exceptional are the white and red wines of 2020, whilst the reds display early promise thanks to intense colour and tannin concentration.

About the Wine Estate

DeMorgenzon, ‘the morning sun,’ was so named as 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.
