De Morgenzon Dmz Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

DeMorgenzon are totally committed to excellence and focus on crafting wines which express the unique terroir and fruit within a classic structure - we believe that the finest South African wines combine New World-style fruit with Old World-style elegance. These Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are situated along the west coast. Trellised vineyard is managed to ensure natural high acidity and full flavour concentration. The yield was 8 tons per hectare. Vintage: 2010 Grapes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc Region: Stellenbosch, South Africa Notes: Pale, bright gold with green reflections. Expansive nose blossoming with youth and bursting fresh bouquet on the nose. Heaps of fresh, ripe, sweet fruit in the mouth with jangle of brisk acidity. Ageing: Intense and almost like a stroppy young teenager full of vigour yet still has the breeding to tone down and develop over a year or two. Enjoy now in the exuberance of youth and follow it's development over next few years Serve: At 8 - 10 deg C with appetisers, fish, seafood or just on its own! ABV: 13.5%

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 ba...

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 unique terroir and fruit within a classic structure - we believe that the finest South African wines combine New World-style fruit with Old World-style elegance. 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.   Read less
