*7R* 2017 DeMorgenzon "DMZ" Syrah (Stellenbosch, South Africa)

Weight: 7R

Varietal: Syrah

Region: Stellenbosch, Western Cape, South Africa

DeMorgenzon has the distinction of being not only one of the oldest estates in Stellenbosch, but one of the highest-altitude plantings in the region. Here, winemaker Carl Van Der Merwe works with estate owners Wendy and Hylton Appelbaum work to create wines that are distinctly South African. This full-bodied Syrah features notes of ripe cherries, lavender, and cinnamon with a lively acidity on the palate.
