De Morgenzon

All wine estates in the Western Cape are beautiful and all have unique terroir. 
However, we believe that DeMorgenzon is the most extraordinary of them all. Our slopes rise from about 200m to nearly 400m above sea level and our vistas embrace Cape Town, Table Mountain, Cape Point, Cape Hangklip, the Hottentots Holland mountains, Helderberg and Simonsberg with the ocean as a backdrop. While we could call ourselves 'mountain vineyards' we prefer to be known as 'garden vineyards'. In Spring specially chosen wildflowers flourish between our vines. We have no doubt that a biodiverse and ecologically sensitive environment produces infinitely better grapes and the beauty of our gardens is captured in every bottle of our wine. 
We pipe Baroque music through our vineyards 24x7 and believe that the power of music positively influences the ripening process. 
At DeMorgenzon we are totally committed to excellence and focus on crafting wines which express our Read more »

  • In case you haven’t heard, June 17th is Chenin Blanc Day. And like so many wine lovers, one of the first places I go for great Chenin Blanc is South Africa. While South Africa is considered part of the New World, at this point, the country’s vines are quite venerable. The first vintage of South African wine was recorded in 1659. Meanwhile, the f...

  • The status of South African wine in the USA is lamentable. Even in New York City, where the most diverse selection of wine styles and origins in the world spoils imbibers, South Africa barely appears on the radar screen. The US has no heritage links to the Cape, and much of what has come ashore here in the 20 years since the end of apartheid has...

    Very Cabernet driven on the nose with obvious notes of roasted chilies and red currant fruit. A hint of sweetness on entry is quickly balanced by plenty of juicy acidity here.

  • De Morgenzon Chardonnay 2012


    Always interested in trying something different. This South African chardonnay is quite nice, almost Chablis like in its freshness and nice acidity. There's a good bit of lemon chiffon upfront but also some stone fruit in the background. Nice clean finish and overall well balanced. Read More

  • It’s time again to venture into the unknown in order to find some new wines for the coming summer season. Chenin Blanc may be best known in it’s home, France’s Loire Valley, but it is also an exceptionally important variety in South Africa. Perhaps the most important white variety as South Africa continues to re-establish it’s markets around the... Read More
